Nobel laureates meet students to talk about our planet

​Nobel laureates Frances Arnold, Jack Szostak and Ben Feringa are three of the dozen world-leading researchers who will gather in Aula Magna in Stockholm 9-10 May to meet 800 participants, most of whom are high school students.
Chalmers President Stefan Bengtsson will give an opening speech as the largest ever Molecular Frontiers Symposium is held in Stockholm. “Planet Earth: A Scientific Journey” takes place May 9-10 in Aula Magna at Stockholm University, and features presentations by twelve world-leading scientists, including three Nobel laureates. Close to 500 of the 800 participants in the symposium are high school students from Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Estonia and the United States. As usual during Molecular Frontiers’ events, the students will be given ample time to ask questions to the speakers.

At the symposium, the winners of the student competition “Solutions for Planet Earth”, organized by the scientific journal Molecular Frontiers Journal, will be announced. The 1st prize of 5000 USD will go to the author of the best assay on this timely topic.
