The Nobel Prize is awarded once a year by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Five Nobel Prizes were established by the will of Alfred Nobel in 1895. They have been awarded for outstanding contributions in physics, chemistry, literature, peace, and physiology or medicine since 1901.
Fez has been selected for the "Fes Conference of Nobel Laureates" because the city is Morocco's spiritual capital, and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Further assistance will be provided by the National Academy of the Kingdom of Morocco.
