The Nobel Prize ceremony, the first since World War II, is canceled
For the first time in history, the Nobel Prize ceremony, scheduled for December 10 in Stockholm, will be canceled due to the global pandemic situation.
"The last time the ceremony was not held in Stockholm was in 1944, during World War II," Gustav Källstrand, a Nobel Prize-winning historian, told the media.
The ceremony will take place virtually and will be broadcast on television and social media platforms, as is happening recently with all the awards events.
"This year, the idea is for medals and certificates of appreciation to be handed out to candidates in a safe way, in their places of residence, most likely with the help of the candidates' embassies and universities," the Foundation explained.
