Nobel Symposia

The Nobel Foundation's Symposium programme was initiated in 1965. Since then about 150 symposia have taken place. The Nobel Symposia programme has obtained a good reputation and now plays a significant role in the international exchange of knowledge and experience.

The financial base for the Nobel Symposia programme consists of funds received from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

In January 2015 the Nobel Foundation's Symposia Committee was dissolved and the Nobel Symposia programme is managed by the Nobel Foundation Programme Committee (Nobelstiftelsens programkommitté).
