During Nobel Week, the laureates give their official Nobel Prize lectures, which describe the history and background of their discoveries, literature or prize-awarded work. With few exceptions, this has been done since the first Nobel Prizes were awarded in 1901. The Nobel Prize Concert is held annually on 8 December to honour the year’s Nobel Prize laureates. The Nobel Prize award ceremonies take place on 10 December, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel’s death. Watch the streams of the events here!
