Under the headline “talk-about” short lectures are held every day, dealing with the lesser known questions about Alfred Nobel, the Nobel Prize, or the Nobel Laureates.

Talk-about is held in Bistro Nobel, where you can sit down, order something light to eat or drink, and hear about something that you didn't know. 

The topics will vary from time to time and may range from the question of posthumous Nobel Prizes to what Alfred Nobel really felt about peace, and everything in between. 

The lectures are around 15 minutes and are held in English.
