Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week
The fourth edition of the Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week 2010 Oct 22-31 began at Delhi. The Embassy of Sweden is simultaneously celebrating the commemorative week in six locations -Pune, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and New Delhi- across the country.
The festival opened with a Swedish Food Festival.
The week-long festival will bring the legacy of the Nobel Prize, the world`s highest civilian honour, in concert with the theme for 2010, ‘Innovating for Good’. Like every year, the festival will culminate into a grand finale with a Swedish brunch at Olive Bar and special Nobel dinner at the embassy.
As you all are aware, Alfred Bernhard Nobel (Oct 21, 1833 to Dec 10, 1896) was a Swedish chemist, engineer, innovator and armaments manufacturer and of course the initiator of Nobel Prizes.
