During the Nobel Lectures, the Nobel Laureates explain their work leading to the Nobel Prize. This year's awarded achievements are fascinatingly diverse, ranging from the measurement and manipulation of individual quantum systems, the inner workings of G-protein-coupled receptors to the discovery that mature, specialised cells can be reprogrammed to become immature. Works covering the hallucinatory realism in writing, the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe and the stable allocations and practical design of market institutions have also been awarded.
The Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony from the Oslo City Hall honors this year's Peace Prize Laureates, the European Union. EU representatives Presidents Herman Van Rompuy, José Manuel Barroso and Martin Schulz will receive the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize medal and diploma and deliver the Nobel Lecture during the ceremony.
At the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony in the Stockholm Concert Hall, the Nobel Laureates in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature and the Laureates in Economic Sciences will receive their Nobel Prize medal and diploma from His Majesty the King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.
