The?second qualifier round of the 10-city annual intercollegiate quiz competition,?Sweden India Nobel Memorial Quiz,?will be organised in Guwahati on?September 6, 2014 at the Indian Institute of Technology at 10:00 am.?The competition, which is a part of The Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week, a high-profile, multi-city, multi-activity annual event is organised by The Embassy of Sweden and Swedish industry in India.? Ambassador of Sweden to India, H.E. Mr. Harald Sandberg?and?Sweden?s first astronaut Mr. Christer Fuglesang?will be the Chief Guests at the event. This is the first time ever that this popular quiz competition will be organised in Guwahati. With the addition of Guwahati and Indore, the Quiz now takes place in a total of?ten cities?including Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune over the month of September and culminates with the national finals in New Delhi. Winners from Guwahati will compete for the National championship with finalists from the other cities to win an all-expense paid trip to Sweden, where they will get to visit the headquarters of global Swedish companies, Swedish Universities and the Nobel Museum among other things. In an endeavour to make the Quiz bigger and better and to build up the excitement in advance a few new elements have been introduced:

  • ?Official Quiz Trailers, through Question of the Day on?www.facebook.com/swedeninindia.
  • ?Weekly Quizzes and Downloadable Quizzes on?www.justquizz.com, which can be used as practice sessions, since there will be questions from here in the Preliminary Rounds at the venues. Participants stand a chance to win prizes and feature on a Leader-board that would facilitate self-assessment.
  • ?The rules of the quiz have been amended this time around to ensure greater democratisation of the process. Students will be allowed to participate only in their own city. Only if prelims are not happening in the home city, will a team be allowed to participate in the nearest Venue City. A team will be allowed to participate in a Live Round (prelim) only once. This ensures a level playing field and will also ensure that only the winning team from a city actually represents that city!
This year the quiz will be conducted for the first time by Kunal Savarkar, a mastermind semi-finalist and Content Editor for Kaun Banega Crorepati.?The Quiz is one of the activities of the Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week which targets students. Other activities include?lectures, seminars and round tables, exhibitions and cultural performances. The Embassy of Sweden in India, along with prominent Swedish businesses organise the Week each year, to commemorate the spirit of the Swedish innovator, entrepreneur & philanthropist Alfred Nobel. Through knowledge, innovation and creativity the Swedish contributions to the development of the world is acknowledged. This event also becomes a platform to strengthen the relations between the two countries and further enhance the positive image of Sweden in India.
