Who can nominate a candidate?
Thousands of people around the world are eligible to submit nominations for Nobel Prizes. They include university professors, legislators, past Nobel laureates and committee members.
What does Norway have to do with the Nobel Prize?
The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded in Norway, while other prizes are awarded in Sweden. Alfred Nobel wanted a similar award.
How to qualify for Nobel Prize?
The only answer is patience. To ensure that any progress takes time, the Nobel jury takes decades to recognize the progress scientists have made. Similarly scientists have to wait for several years for this. Nobel states that the prize should be awarded to those who have contributed the most benefit to mankind in the previous year. Only the Shanti Awards Committee regularly recognizes achievements made during the previous year.
