Live event in Amsterdam and live stream

Inspiring conversations between the leading people of science and art

The outstanding achievements of the 2022 Heineken Prizes laureates and the 2022 Heineken Young Scientists will be honoured on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in Amsterdam. During the live Award Ceremony, we would like to introduce you to the people behind the prizes and show you how big the societal impact of their work is on our daily lives.

The programme will be hosted by Dr Barry Fitzgerald. He will lead five talks between the ten laureates. The conversations will be alternated with additional speakers and music performances.

The pairs that are linked on a theme that connects their work are:

Our communication – Carolyn Bertozzi & Liesbeth van Vliet

Our cells – Vishva Dixit & Laura Kervezee

Our thoughts – Kia Nobre & Fleur Jongepier

Our environment – Sunil Amrith & Carl Folke

Our truth – Remy Jungerman & Jordi Tura i. Brugués

Please know that this event is an invitation only event. But the Award Ceremony will also be live streamed via

We hope to see you (online) on September the 29
