ABB and Nobel Media announce international partnership
Nobel Media, an entity within the Nobel Foundation, extends the reach of the Nobel Prize to millions of people around the world through inspirational events, digital media and special exhibitions and activities related to the legacy of Alfred Nobel and the achievements of the Nobel Laureates.

The ABB-Nobel Media partnership aims to share knowledge broadly, inspire people to engage in science and shed light on our time’s greatest challenges. As a pioneering technology leader, ABB will bring deep scientific and innovation experience and commitment into the partnership.
ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer commented, “We are delighted to become a Nobel International Partner to celebrate the visionaries who are shaping the world and writing the future. Nobel and ABB share a deep commitment to innovation and the power of ideas, 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 endeavor.”
Managing Director, ABB Sweden, Johan Söderström added, “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. This partnership also strengthens our commitment to younger generations.”
“The Nobel Prize stands for the power of ideas and the making of a better world through knowledge and science. Committing to these values is more important than ever, a responsibility we share with ABB,” said Mattias Fyrenius, Chief Executive Officer of Nobel Media. “In order to handle our time’s greatest challenges, strengthening the ties between the business community, policy makers and academia is key, which makes me proud to announce the partnership with ABB”.
