Nobel Symposia

The Nobel Foundation's Symposium program was initiated in 1965. Since that time more than a hundred symposia have taken place. The symposia are devoted to areas of science where breakthroughs are occurring or deal with other topics of primary cultural or social significance.

The Symposium Committee is composed of representatives of the Nobel Committees in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature and Peace; the Prize Committee for Economics; the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation; and the Wallenberg Foundation. The Executive Director of the Nobel Foundation is the committee chairman.
