The Nobel Foundation is a private institution established in 1900 based on the will of Alfred Nobel. The main task is to manage the assets made available through the will, and the intellectual property related to the Nobel Prize that has developed over the years. Several outreach organisations and activities have been developed to inspire generations and disseminate knowledge about the Nobel Prize.

For the greatest benefit to humankind

What would the world be like without penicillin? What are good examples of discoveries that will decrease our climate impact? How do we help people who have become refugees? These are some of the questions highlighted in the new exhibition ‘For the Greatest Benefit to Humankind’, which opened at Nobel Prize Museum on 5 October.

'Lost and Found'

‘Lost and Found’ is a moving, inspiring story of humanity in the world’s largest refugee camp. The film follows Kamal Hussein, a Rohingya refugee who has dedicated his life to reuniting children with their parents, with the support of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. ‘Lost and Found’, from National Geographic Documentary Films, is the result of a partnership between the Nobel Prize and Academy Award-winning director Orlando von Einsiedel (‘The White Helmets’).
