Dr. Ashok K Chitkara, Chancellor; and Dr. Madhu Chitkara, Vice-Chancellor, Chitkara University; were invited for the 3rd Nobel Lecture Series 2019, held on September 11, 2019. Organised by National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute (NABI), Mohali; this year’s theme for the series is ‘Teaching and Learning’.

The series was inaugurated by Shri. Balbir Singh Sidhu, Punjab Minister for Health & Welfare; and Dr. Renu Swarup, Secretary, Department of Biotechnology. The National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute (NABI) at Mohali hosted the inaugural day of the series which comprises of conferences, roundtables, lectures and an exhibition.

This is the first time Nobel Media has launched an exhibition anywhere in the world. NABI will host the Nobel Museum Exhibition from September 12 to October 11.

In order to realise the vision of Alfred Nobel, the founder of the Nobel prize, the 2019 series made students interact with two Nobel laureates. Serge Haroche, a Nobel Prize winner in Physics; and Kailash Satyarthi, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, were an integral part of the programme. Haroche gave a presentation on the need for children to study Mathematics and Science, while Juleen Zeirath, a member of the Nobel committee at Karolinska Institute, made a presentation on the process of selection and awarding the Nobel prize.

This is the third such series in India and the first in Punjab. It is the result of a collaboration between Nobel Media AB and the ministry of science and technology-based upon an MoU signed by the government in 2016.
