List of Nobel Prize Recipients - 2017

Dear Aspirants,
 
The Nobel Prize is a set of annual international awards, awarded in several categories by Swedish and Norwegian institutions in recognition of academic, cultural, or scientific advances. The prize was established in 1895 by Swedish scientist Alfred Nobel. The prizes in Chemistry, Literature, Peace, Physics and Physiology or Medicine were first awarded in 1901.
The prize ceremonies take place annually in Stockholm, Sweden (with the exception of the peace prize, which is held in Oslo, Norway).
