Seven Nobel Laureates to give lectures at Uppsala University

28 November 2014

It is a long-standing tradition for the Nobel Laureates to be invited to Uppsala University in connection with the annual Nobel Prize ceremony in Stockholm. This year, seven laureates will give public lectures in Uppsala, 13 December – open to all! The lectures will also be broadcast live online.

The Nobel Laureates’ visit to Uppsala 13 December includes a reception with the Vice-Chancellor and lunch at Uppsala Castle, but also the very popular public lectures given by the visiting laureates.

Since the lectures are very popular it is important to arrive in good time. Seats must be taken no later than 15 minutes before the lecture starts.
