ABB partners with organisation behind Nobel Prize

CEO of Nobel Media Mattias Fyrenius, Executive Director of the Nobel Foundation Lars Heikensten, ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer and Johan Söderström, Managing Director, ABB Sweden, mark ABB a select group of Nobel International Partners.

“The Nobel Prize stands for the power of ideas and the making of a better world through knowledge and science. Committing to these values is more important than ever, a responsibility we share with ABB. In order to handle our greatest challenges, strengthening the ties between the business community, policy makers and academia is key, which makes me proud to announce the partnership with ABB,” says Mattias Fyrenius, Chief Executive Officer of Nobel Media.

“We are delighted to become a Nobel International Partner to celebrate the visionaries who are shaping the world and writing the future. Nobel and ABB share a deep commitment to innovation and the power of ideas, and we are inspired by this opportunity to spotlight the ground-breaking work of Nobel Laureates, to celebrate science and discovery and to inspire the next generation of extraordinary pioneers. We look forward to working closely with Nobel and to involving our customers, employees and communities around the world in this exciting endeavour,” adds ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer.

The ABB-Nobel Media partnership aims to share knowledge, inspire people to engage in science and shed light on our time’s greatest challenges. As a technology company, ABB will bring scientific and innovation experience and commitment into the partnership.

Nobel Media’s events and activations include thought-provoking conferences, lectures and exhibitions globally as well as engaging content through broad-reaching digital channels. The next Nobel Prize Dialogue – which brings together Nobel Laureates, world-leading scientists, policy makers and thought leaders from around the world – will be held in Santiago, Chile in mid-January 2019.

“Partnering with one of our country’s most important institutions is a privilege for all of us at ABB. We are excited to explore the events, activities and engagements together with the best scientists in the world. This partnership also strengthens our commitment to younger generations,” concludes Managing Director of ABB Sweden, Johan Söderström.
