On 7 December the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences will open Nobel week with a press conference, where we gather 2023 year’s laureates in Physics and Chemistry, as well as the laureate of the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. It will also be possible to conduct individual interviews with the laureates.
At the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences it has become traditional to start the Nobel week with a unique opportunity for media representatives to meet and put questions to the laureates for the prizes awarded by the Academy – Physics, Chemistry and Economic Sciences.
This year’s prizes were awarded for research about attosecond physics which has given us new tools for exploring the world of electrons inside atoms and molecules, development of quantum dots, nanoparticles so tiny that their size determines their properties, and women’s role in the labour market. You can read more about the prizes and the laureates here on our website (see below). The laureates in Physics are: Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz and Anne L’Huillier, in Chemistry, Moungi G. Bawendi, Louis E. Brus and Aleksey Yekimov, and in Economic Sciences, Claudia Goldin.
Please request individual interviews with laureates in the registration form. Interview time slots are limited and will be offered as available. You should also let us know if you want to reserve a space for filming with a camera on a stand.
