„For the greatest benefit of humankind. “ Alfred Nobel
Our student trainee Sophie was honored to attend the Nobel Prize ceremony on December 10, 2018 in Stockholm. She was wearing the student cap and sash in colors of her faculty of Science and Engineering/ Biomedical Engineering at Linköping University.
The founders of Kikusema GmbH also got the opportunity to participate. The evening began at the concert hall with the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony.
A special warm and long applause received the prize winners in physiology or medicine for their achievements in the fight against cancer.
At the end all together sang the Swedish national anthem – it gave you the chills. Afterwards the laureates and the guests went by shuttle busses to the Blue Hall of Stockholm’s City Hall. Great entertainment and an amazing delicious menu of fine food and drinks were on offer.
Evening’s highlights were the speeches of the Nobel Prize laureates.
Donna Strickland, Frances H. Arnold, Tasuku Honjo and William D. Nordhaus.
Then we all went up to the dance in the Golden Room. To see and be seen was once again the motto….
Sophie could come meet her great role model Donna Strickland. Donna received the Nobel Prize for discoveries, which she already formulated in her PhD thesis. Donna is an inspiration for Sophie to go into research.
At one o’clock in the morning we went to the After Party at the Stockholm School of Economics. Because press, politicians and the royal family were not present students and winners could have come each other closer informally. But at this late or early hour it was not that easy anymore.
Sophie got the chance to describe her expetations and impressions of the
Nobel Prize ceremony in one article of the local newspaper (Mariestads Tidningen) and in two interviews on local radio (P4 Skaraborg).
