Connecting Nobel Laureates in Chemistry and Physics with the next generation of scientists, the Honeywell-Nobel Initiative announces the latest in its unique series of lecture events that allows students and educators to follow and take part online.
The Honeywell-Nobel Initiative is an educational partnership between Honeywell, Nobel Web AB and Nobel Media AB, the centrepiece of which is a series of events that takes Nobel Laureates in Chemistry and Physics to selected universities worldwide.

According to Horst Störmer (Nobel Prize in Physics, 1998), "The common language of Science is a powerful tool to bridge the gap between cultures. The Honeywell-Nobel Initiative can very productively affect the dialogue between nations."
