The respective prize-awarding institutions have announced the winners of the 2021 Nobel Prize.

The recipients of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, Physics, Chemistry, Literature and Peace were announced on the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th of October respectively.

The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel was divided – one half awarded to David Card “for his empirical contributions to labour economics” and the other half jointly to Joshua D. Angrist and Guido W. Imbems “for their methodical contributions to the analysis of causal relationships”.

The award ceremony itself, as per tradition, is expected to take place on 10 December – the anniversary of Alfred Nobel’s death.
