Ig Nobel Prize – Denmark tour

The lecture is taught in English/Foredraget afholdes på letforståeligt engelsk.

After several requests – and with generous support from Carlsbergs Mindelegat – we are again able to invite the alternative Nobel Prize – the Ig Nobel Prize – to Aarhus University. Meet three researchers who have received the Ig Nobel Prize and the founder of the prize – mathematician Marc Abrahams.

It is hard to describe the Ig Nobel Prize and not least lectures of the prize winners – it needs to be experienced. Here is a try though: The award ceremony: Orchestrated by Marc Abrahams the ten Ig Nobel Prizes were awarded for the 23rd time in a blaze of publicity at a great gala ceremony at Harvard University, USA on September 12, 2013. The prize brings into focus ten research results of the year that are exceptionally creative, unlikely and bizarre, though still serious. To put it in another way: The prize goes to “peculiar research” that in the first place makes us laugh and then afterwards gives us food for thought. The prize covers a wide range of sciences yet with main emphasis on natural science, medicine and social science. In general the prizes are given to respected serious research which has been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
