EVENT: The National Research Foundation, in conjunction with the Swedish Embassy in Pretoria, will again co-host the Annual Nobel Inspired Lecture Series.

The National Research Foundation, in conjunction with the Swedish Embassy in Pretoria, will co-host the Annual Nobel Inspired Lecture Series.

The lectures will be held this Wednesday at the CPUT Bellville Campus and the University of Fort Hare’s Alice Campus.

The lectures are open to all researchers and students (undergraduates and postgraduates) from the various universities and science councils working within the Nobel fields, as well as the public.

The Swedish-South Africa Nobel Inspired Lecture Series was launched in 2014 and annually brings together prominent researchers in the fields of Economic Sciences, Medicine/Physiology, Physics, Chemistry, Peace and Literature for an event coinciding with the announcement of the Nobel Laureates in Stockholm, Sweden.

The aim of the event is to acknowledge research excellence in South Africa and Sweden and celebrate the long-standing friendship between the two countries by emphasising the importance of research, technology and innovation in addressing real challenges that are confronting communities.

This year’s series will be preceded by a live screening of the announcement of the 2016 Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry (for the CPUT lecture) and Peace (for the UFH lecture).

The announcements will be followed by a presentation by Olof Somell, Curator of the Nobel Museum in Stockholm and specialist in economics, who will provide an overview of the history and context of the Nobel Prize.

The CPUT Lecture in Chemistry will be presented by Prof Len Barbour, a distinguished professor in Chemistry and SARChI Chair in Nanostructured Functional Materials at the University of Stellenbosch.

*All members of the public are invited to attend. Please see the below information:
