Without great teachers, no new Nobel Laureates. Therefore, teachers and students are especially important to us. Many Nobel Prize Laureates testify that a certain teacher challenged or encouraged them, and that the experience has been crucial to the choices they made in life. Through our educational efforts we want to assure many more student experience the feeling of a genuine aha-moment.
Our investment in schools and teachers is based on the Nobel Prize and the vision to work for “the greatest benefit to humankind” which Alfred Nobel expressed in his will. Our educational programs will take advantage of the Nobel Prize’s ability of inspiring people to seek out knowledge, to question and to understand and improve our world.
Nobel Prize Education Network will be the foundation for our various teacher-focused activities, both in terms of physical meetings and digital resources.
