Nobel Symposia

The Nobel Foundation’s symposium activities were initiated in 1965. Over the years they have achieved a high international standing. The symposia are devoted to areas of science where breakthroughs are occurring or deal with topics of primary cultural or social significance.

During 2017 it was decided that the Nobel Symposia will no longer be administered by the Nobel Foundation. Starting in 2019, the responsibility for funding and administering the symposia is being licensed out to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the Norwegian Nobel Committee.
