Livestreamet foredrag fra Aarhus Universitet (på engelsk)

Lecture by the founder of the Ig Nobel Prize, Marc Abrahams, and three price winners.

The Ig Nobel Prize is awarded for “peculiar research” that at first make us laugh and then think deeply. Attend this lecture for a humor-filled dive into the prize-winning research and find the vital answers to e.g. “Can a Cat Be Both a Solid and a Liquid?”

We are again able to invite some of the researchers who have received the alternative Nobel Prize – the Ig Nobel Prize – to Aarhus University. It is hard to describe the Ig Nobel Prize and not least lectures of the price winners – it needs to be experienced. Here is a try though:
The award ceremony takes place every year in a blaze of publicity at a great gala ceremony at Harvard University, USA and is orchestrated by the founder of the prize, Marc Abrahams. The Nobel 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.

Warning: The lectures are not suitable for the humourless. :-)

Tilhørere kan stille spørgsmål til forelæseren under foredraget ved at sende en sms eller et tweet.
