What is a Nobel Prize

Nobel Prizes

The Nobel Prize, an esteemed international accolade, is orchestrated by the Nobel Foundation based in Stockholm, Sweden, and derives from the legacy of Alfred Nobel, a Swedish inventor and businessman. In 1968, the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel was established, augmenting the original categories.

Each award comprises a medal, a diploma tailored to the recipient, and a monetary prize. Annually, it honors individuals in the fields of chemistry, literature, physics, physiology or medicine, economics, and peace for their groundbreaking contributions.

Historically, the prize exhibited a bias towards male recipients predominantly from Europe. The current era prompts an examination of whether this trend has evolved to reflect a more diverse array of laureates.
