Every year, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awards the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry, and the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. Press accreditation for this year’s announcements at three different press conferences at the Academy are now open.
The press conferences at which the laureates will be announced are held at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm. They are only open to the journalists and photographers covering this year´s prizes. Please note that a registration in advance and valid press credentials are mandatory. If you do not have a press ID, contact the Press Secretary directly to discuss the possibility to attend.
This year we are welcoming a maximum of 80 journalists/photographers. If you wish to secure a specific seat in the Session Hall, we suggest that you arrive early. The Session Hall opens at 9.00 a.m CEST. It will also be possible to watch the live streaming from the press conference in the nearby Linnaeus Hall should you wish so.
Please follow the links below in order to register for a specific press conference. Registration must be made for each press conference separately. If you wish to interview an expert from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences after the announcements, please note this in the registration form. Please also let us know if you want to reserve a space for filming with a camera on a stand.
If you cannot attend in person, you can follow the live broadcast at www.kva.se or www.nobelprize.org (no registration needed).
