Nobel and ABB partner to the next generation of visionary leaders

Switzerland, Zurich: in collaboration with Stockholm based Nobel Media

Nobel and ABB partner to the next generation of visionary leaders. ABB’s pioneering work in science and engineering and its commitment to education are at the root of a new, global partnership with the Nobel organization.
ABB has joined a select group of innovative companies to become a Nobel International Partner. The partners program operates in collaboration with Stockholm-based Nobel Media, the global outreach arm of the Nobel Foundation – whose annual prizes in physics, chemistry and other scientific fields recognize the world’s most transformative breakthroughs.

Nobel and ABB share a deep commitment to innovation and the power of ideas

 

Deep experience in science, innovation and research

As a Nobel International Partner, ABB will bring its deep experience in science, innovation and research, and its commitment to innovation to Nobel Media’s global programs – activities that extend the reach of the Nobel Prize to millions of students, decision makers and intellectually curious members of the public around the world.

Nobel and ABB share a deep commitment to innovation and the power of ideas,’’ said ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer, “and we are inspired by this opportunity to spotlight the groundbreaking 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 partnership.

Nobel’s outreach programs include inspirational events, digital media and special exhibitions and activities related to the hundreds of Nobel Laureates since the year 1901, and the legacy of Alfred Nobel, the 19th century Swedish chemist, engineer and inventor on whose inspiration and fortune the Nobel prizes were established.

The activities in which ABB will participate include the Nobel Prize Dialogues – annual events in world capitals that bring Nobel Laureates, scholars, inventors and other great thinkers together with the public to discuss solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues.

Privilege for partnering with one of most important institutions

We believe that, by doing this together – Nobel and ABB – we can get people on a global scale even more engaged and interested in those areas,’’ said Mattias Fyrenius, CEO of Nobel Media. “And I think that is important for ABB. That is important for Nobel. And I truly believe that it is important for mankind.
Johan Söderström, Managing Director, ABB Sweden, which was the home of ASEA – the “A’’ in ABB before its 1987 merger with Brown Boveri of Switzerland – said the Nobel partnership holds special meaning for the company. “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, and to strengthen our commitment to the next generation of visionary leaders.
In becoming a Nobel International Partner, ABB joins a select group of other global companies known for their commitment to research, technological innovation, education, sustainable economic growth and social responsibility: 3M, Ericsson, Scania and Volvo Cars.
