Every year, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine is awarded on the 10th of December, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death. The School of Medical Sciences and the School of Health Sciences at Örebro University traditionally honor this day by organizing research activities and festivities.

The ”Nobel Day Festivities” at Örebro University were established in 2009 by Allan Sirsjö and Nikolaos Venizelos, researchers within Biomedicine, Department of Clinical Medicine (now School of Medical Sciences and School of Health Sciences).

The day includes scientific activities such as lectures, poster presentations and selected oral presentations by doctoral students, researchers at the beginning of their careers (up to three years after the dissertation) and specially invited students who are welcome with their abstracts. All poster presentations are documented in Book of abstracts.
