About Nobel Prize
    The Nobel Prize is an international award given yearly since 1901 for achievements in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature and for peace. In 1968, the Bank of Sweden instituted the Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, founder of the Nobel Prize.

    The Prize Winners are announced in October every year. They receive their awards (a prize amount, a gold medal and a diploma) on December 10, the anniversary of Nobel's death.
    Alfred Nobel was born in 1833 in Stockholm, Sweden. His family was descended from Olof Rudbeck, the best-known technical genius of Sweden's 17th century era as a great power in northern Europe.

    Nobel invented dynamite in 1866 and later built up companies and laboratories in more than 20 countries all over the world.

    On November 27, 1895, Nobel signed his last will providing for the establishment of the Nobel Prize. He died of cerebral haemorrhage in his home in San Remo, Italy on December 10, 1896.
    Alfred died in San Remo, Italy on December 10, 1896. In his last will and testament, he wrote that much of his fortune was to be used to give prizes to those who have done their best for humanity in the field of physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and peace.

    In 1901, the first Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine and Literature were first awarded in Stockholm, Sweden and the Peace Prize in Kristiania (now Oslo), Norway.

Economics
  Front Back
    The Bank of Sweden (Sveriges Riksbank) Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel was first awarded to Ragnar Frisch and Jan Tinbergen in 1969 for their development and application of dynamic models in the analysis of economic processes. The Prize has since been awarded to works ranging from methodologies and theories used in studying the efficient use of economic and financial resources, to macroeconomic performance and economic policy, development economics, international trade and the role of information.
The Nobel Prize in Physics
Physics and Chemistry
  Front Back
    Many of the features that highlight our quest to understand our fascinating world and the universe are reflected in the Nobel Prizes in Physics. The first prize in 1901 was awarded to Wilhelm Ryntgen, for his discovery of X-rays. In more recent years, the Prize has been awarded for discoveries and achievements in communication technology, cosmic radiation, super-fluidity, and the structure of matter, to cite just a few examples.
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry
Physics and Chemistry
  Front Back
    The Nobel Prizes in Chemistry reflect the discoveries and achievements that have resulted from investigations of matter and the processes of life during more than 100 years. Starting with the 1901 prize to Jacobus H.van Hoff, these collective accomplishments have not only increased our understanding of chemical processes and their molecular basis, but also lie behind much of the technological advancements we enjoy today.
