Vienna Seminar of Nobel Laureates

The Vienna Seminar of Nobel Laureates was a renowned series of seminars held from 2006 to 2013. In close collaboration with the Universities of Vienna and the City of Vienna / Wiener Vorlesungen, the seminar offered a unique platform for exchange with Nobel laureates. The Vienna Seminar of Nobel Laureates was initiated and organized by Helmuth Hüffel, professor at the Faculty of Physics at the University of Vienna.

Participants gained valuable insights into physics, chemistry, medicine, peace, and economics through lectures, discussions, and interactive sessions. The seminar fostered interdisciplinary dialogue, forming new networks among scientists, students, and professionals. The seminar leaves behind a legacy of excellence, collaboration, and knowledge advancement in Vienna.

The events were co-financed by go international - an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Economy and Labour and the Austrian Chamber of Commerce. We would like to thank all individuals, institutions, and companies that supported this seminar series.
