December 3, 2021, New Delhi/ Mumbai/ Chennai: The Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week (SINMW), which is now in its 14th edition, is an annual event organised by the Embassy of Sweden, the Consulate General of Sweden in Mumbai and other Team Sweden actors including Swedish companies operating in India. Though the actual week is from December 6-10, 2021, events under the Nobel umbrella have started in November and will go on till Dec 15.
It is the second year where the event takes place virtually due to the pandemic.
Ambassador Klas Molin said: We are happy to present the 14th edition of the Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week, one of the Embassy’s true flagship events. It celebrates Alfred Nobel and his profound legacy in the fields of science, research, innovation and the arts. Here in India, it is a reminder of the long-term commitment of Sweden and Swedish companies, our sponsors.
Our countries have very strong bilateral ties in so many sectors, with a strong focus on innovation and sustainability, which along with gender equality are the underlying themes of this year’s Nobel Memorial Week. With COVID protocols in mind we have have tried to curate a smaller number of safe events for this year. Looking ahead to 2022, we hope to come back with at least a hybrid Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week!
The highlights of the Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week 2021 (SINMW2021) are:
She STEM: Following the astounding success of its launch last year, She STEM is back in a slightly new avatar for the Instagram generation! She STEM is a joint initiative between the Embassy of Sweden in India and the Atal Innovation Mission which emphasises the importance of STEM education for young girls and women. For 2021, She STEM was launched with an Insta reels challenge for 13-17-year-old students who were invited to apply their creative side to scientific solutions for a contest which asks them to ‘Fast forward to 2040’. Students were expected to come up with Insta reels on how to make this world a better place to live as a STEM (Science. Technology. Engineering. Mathematics) leader.
A jury will pick the winners. The prize distribution takes place along with a panel discussion amongst leading female voices on leading STEM & sustainability on Dec 6 at 14:30.
