  Since 2012, Nobel Prize Outreach AB(*) has been annually holding Nobel Week Dialogue on December 9, the day before the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony in Sweden. It is an open symposium aimed at stimulating discussion between world’s leading researchers and intellectuals, including the Nobel laureates, and the general public.
   In March 2015, Nobel Prize Outreach AB and JSPS co-organized that event as Nobel Prize Dialogue Tokyo 2015. It was the first time for the Dialogue to be held outside of Sweden.
   This event is held for the following purposes:
(1) To foster public interest in science and technology.
(2) To contribute to the advancement of science and technology.
   For these purposes, we will invite world’s leading scientists, including Nobel laureates, to carry out a dialogue via a format of open lectures and panel discussions with the general public, including students and young researchers.

(*) Nobel Prize Outreach spreads knowledge about Nobel Prize-awarded achievements and stimulates interest in science, literature and peace in line with Alfred Nobel’s vision and legacy. The company reaches a global audience of millions through its high-quality productions: The official digital channels of the Nobel Prize, the Nobel Prize Concert, as well as a series of intercontinental, inspirational lecture events featuring Nobel Prize laureates.
