This week the Nobel Prize Series brings together Nobel Laureates, world-leading scientists, policy makers and thought leaders in Singapore. The Nobel Prize Series Singapore is presented in partnership with Scania.
Scania has been a partner of Nobel Media for previous official Nobel events held in São Paulo in 2013, and in Rio de Janeiro and New Delhi last year. “This is the fourth world city in which Scania has been a proud partner of international Nobel events,” says Erik Ljungberg, Senior Vice President at Scania. “As a globally active company, we share an interest in the fundamental issues that are raised here and the importance of science in shaping the future.”
Several thousand people, including five Nobel Laureates – Professor Ada Yonath (Chemistry, 2009), Sir Harold Walter Kroto (Chemistry, 1996), Sir James Mirrlees (Economic Sciences, 1996), Professor Stefan Hell (Chemistry, 2014) and Professor Wole Soyinka (Literature, 1986) – as well as the world’s top public and business leaders, academics, educators, community stakeholders and students will converge in Singapore for the Nobel Prize Series Singapore 2015 to discuss the latest thinking that will impact the future of learning and development in the 21st century.
The Nobel Prize Series Singapore 2015 will feature a main conference and an executive roundtable about “The Future of Learning,” public lectures incorporating dialogues with students, as well as a special exhibition.
The travelling exhibition The Nobel Prize – Ideas Changing the World will be displayed in Singapore until January 24, 2016. The exhibition tells how Nobel Prize-awarded work has shaped and continues to change our world. “Innovation also lies at the heart of Scania and we are inspired by ideas in continuously improving solutions for our customers,” says Ljungberg.
