Nobel Prize 2022 Winners list: Complete List of Noble Prize 2022

In this article, we will cover the list of Nobel Prize 2022 winners with their names and their contributions. 

Every year in October, committees in Sweden and Norway award six Nobel Prizes, one of the world's most prestigious awards. Each prize honors an individual or organisation for making a significant contribution to a particular discipline.

 The Nobel Prizes are prestigious awards given according to Alfred Nobel's will of 1895. Alfred Nobel was a Swedish chemist, engineer, and industrialist best known for developing dynamite. 1896 saw his passing.

The Nobel Prize was given out for the first time in 1901, and since then, 975 people and organisations have received it 609 times.

The Nobel Prize was first exclusively awarded to those who had made outstanding contributions to the fields of physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature, and peace. Later, the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences was also established with funding from Sweden's central bank.

The following committees decide who receives the Nobel Prize in each category:

  • Noble Prize in Literature – Swedish Academy.
  • Noble Prize in Peace – Norwegian Nobel Committee.
  • Noble Prize in Physics – Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
  • Nobel Prize in Chemistry – Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
  • Noble Prize in Economics – Sveriges Riksbank, Bank of Sweden.
