Nobel Prize Dialogue is an open, cross-disciplinary meeting bringing together a unique constellation of Nobel Laureates, world-leading scientists, policy makers and thought leaders to discuss global issues that affect us all.
A forum for scientists and non-scientists alike, the meeting aims to deepen the dialogue between the scientific community and the rest of society. The Nobel Prize Dialogue is free to attend and accessible to a worldwide audience online.
The purpose of this event is to stimulate discussion at the highest level on a topical, science-related theme by bringing together Nobel Laureates, the world’s leading scientists, key opinion leaders, policy makers, different interest groups and the general public.

On 1 March 2015, the first 'Nobel Prize Dialogue' outside Sweden was held in Tokyo, focusing on the future of genetic science. The whole-day conference gathered scientists from around the world, including seven Nobel Laureates, in discussions on how advances in genetics have influenced science and society.
Longevity, kind robots, and breakthroughs that are impossible to predict. Those were some of the topics when the six attending Nobel Laureates mapped scenarios for the future in the concluding plenary sessions about the genetic revolution.
