Together with the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) the Embassy hosted Scientific Symposiums and celebrations for the 2021 Nobel Prizes Laureates who are based in the United States.
As the laureates were unable to travel to Stockholm this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Embassy and NAS hosted events in Washington, DC and in Irvine, California.
On December 6, Nobel Prize medals and diplomas were presented to laureates on the East Coast — physics laureate Syukuro Manabe, chemistry laureate David W.C. MacMillan, and economic sciences laureate Joshua Angrist.
On December 8, Nobel Prize medals and diplomas were presented on the West Coast to honor physiology or medicine laureates David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian, and economic sciences laureates David Card and Guido W. Imbens. Ambassador Olofsdotter presented the medals and diplomas to all U.S. based laureates.
