Nobel Prize Inspiration Initiative

The Nobel Prize Inspiration Initiative (NPII) is a global programme designed to help Nobel Laureates share their inspirational stories and insights. By taking Nobel Laureates on visits to universities and research centres around the world, and by capturing their thoughts on video, the initiative seeks to bring the Laureates into closer contact with the worldwide scientific community, and especially with an audience of young scientists.

There have been 24 NPIIs on four continents delivered in partnership with AstraZeneca, a relationship which began in 2010, and one NPII delivered in partnership with 3M.

Coming up

Spain 2018
