About Nobel Peace Prize | Research & Information 

The Nobel Peace Prize Research & Information  is an independent, private not-for-profit organization. We are affiliated with the Norwegian Nobel Institute while financially and legally independent. Our work is funded by proceeds from  the Nobel Peace Prize Concert. As the official organizer of the annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert, the company bases its year-round activities on revenues from said concert, as well as on royalties from the sale of Nobel Peace Prize laureate commemorative medals by the Mint of Norway AS.

The NPPRI is the research wing of the Norwegian Nobel institute. Through our meetings, seminars and conferences, we bring together people from the worlds of politics and academia, as well as other opinion-formers. Our main fields of endeavour are the annual visiting fellows program, the annual teachers' seminar and the Nobel Symposia. The company can also lend support to other activities that informs about the Nobel Peace Prize, its background and history, peace price laureates and their work as well as Alfred Nobel and the Nobel system in general.

The Nobel Peace Prize Concert is a musical tribute held annually on 11 December to honor the year's Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. Performers from around the world join in the celebration of this important event, which features music ranging from pop and rock to jazz, classical, blues and country. The special mix of celebrity, celebration and ceremony makes this event a night to remember
