Global Achievers: Noble Prize 2020
In October each year, the world’s attention is directed to Stockholm as the new Nobel Laureates are announced. To celebrate and understand the work that contributed to the greatest benefit of humankind, several events take place where research, science, literature and peace are focused. Twelve laureates were awarded Nobel Prize in 2020, for achievements that have conferred the greatest benefit to humankind. Their work and discoveries range from the formation of black holes and genetic scissors to efforts to combat hunger and develop new auction formats.
