The Nobel Prize: Ideas Changing the World

20140510–20141116

The Nobel Prize: Ideas Changing the World is a temporary exhibition that expands the Nobel Museum's permanent exhibitions. It takes as its starting point the phrase in the last will of Alfred Nobel that states that the Nobel Prize should be awarded to those who “have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind” and highlights how Nobel Prize-awarded efforts have shaped and continue to change our world.

The Nobel Prize in Our Daily Lives demonstrates the link between Nobel Prize-awarded efforts and phenomena in everyday life.

The Nobel Prize and the Future addresses the question of how Nobel Prize-awarded discoveries may affect the future and of what future Nobel Prizes may involve.

The Nobel Prize: Ideas Changing the World is based on a travelling exhibition which premiered in São Paulo in November 2013 and still tours the world.
