Nobel Week is next week and in anticipation of the Nobel Prize award ceremonies there’s a new meeting focusing on encouraging discussions about science and society. The second Nobel Week Dialogue event will take place on Monday 9th December in Gothenburg, and this year the theme is The Future of Energy.
The event starts at 10 am local time on Monday (9am for those in the UK) and features morning plenary talks by Nobel laureates including David Gross, Carlo Rubbia and Steven Chu. After a break for lunch and more informal sessions, the afternoon continues with three streams of panel discussions. All of the sessions will be live-streamed on the Nobel Week Dialogue website so do check out the programme and watch along live.
Like the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, there’s also an official blog team for the event to bring additional online coverage in English and Swedish which will include live-tweeting and blog posts. NPG’s Lou Woodley is part of the team this year and will also be participating in a lunchtime session discussing new formats for communicating science. You can join in the conversations by reading and commenting on the blog posts and following the official Twitter account, @NobelWeekDialog and the #nwd13 hashtag. There will also be an opportunity to submit questions on the day via the website.
