On Tuesday March 27, EPFL will welcome for the third time the Ig Nobel Award Tour Show, with Marc Abrahams and a line-up of Ig Nobel Prize winners, with the support of the NCCR MARVEL.
The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that makes people laugh, and then think. The prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative — and spur people's interest in science, medicine, and technology.
This year's programme invites you to discover:
- Marc Abrahams
Father of the annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony and editor of Annals of Improbable Research
- Milo Puhan (University of Zurich) and Alex Suarez (Asate AG, Switzerland)
2017 Peace Prize winners — "Using a didgeridoo to treat obstructive sleep apnoea and snoring"
- Nadia Dominici (VU University Amsterdam)
2013 Physics Prize winner — "Some people would be physically capable of running across the surface of a pond — if those people and that pond were on the moon"
- Kees Moeliker (Natuurhistorisch Museum Rotterdam)
2003 Biology Prize winner — "How a dead duck changed my life"
Ig Nobel Award Tour Show on 21 March 2017 at EPFL, with Marc Abraham, Ludwig Huber, Hynek Burda and Alessandro Pluchino.
