Nobel prizes 2020

Since 1901 the presentation of the Nobel prizes has taken place on December 10. A special date since it is the anniversary of Nobel’s death.

The Swedish king, King Carl XVI Gustaf, presents the laureates with their medals and diplomas. Each laureate is expected to deliver a brief lecture, or speach.
