News 11/2018 – The Nobel Prizes 2018

Once a year, on 10th December, the Swedish capital Stockholm becomes the hub of the scientific world. On the anniversary of Alfred Nobel’s death, the recently announced laureates in physics, chemistry and physiology or medicine receive the Nobel Prize medals and diploma from King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden. The Nobel Prize Award Ceremonies have a longstanding tradition: Since 1901, the prize has been honouring scientists who “have conferred the greatest benefit to humankind”. We are looking forward to this special event which will take place again in just a few days.

Over the past weeks, we have been publishing various articles on our blog about the scientific breakthroughs that led to the 2018 Nobel Prizes. In addition, an exclusive interview with this year’s Nobel Laureate in Physics, Arthur Ashkin, covering his fascinating life and academic career, can be watched in our mediatheque. At the age of 96, Ashkin is the oldest person ever to be honoured with the Nobel Prize. Get inspired by this year’s Nobel Prizes!

All the best,
