The Council and Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings deeply mourn the loss of Sten Orrenius, Professor Emeritus at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm. Professor Orrenius was a member of the Nobel Assembly (1971 – 2003), a member of the Nobel Committee (1983 – 1989, 1996 – 2002) at Karolinska Institutet and of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences (since 1989).

At the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings he was a founding member of the Foundation and a member of the Council from 1993 – 2003, since then he continued to support the Lindau Meetings as a Corresponding Council Member. The Council and Foundation extend their deep sympathies to Sten Orrenius’ wife Birgit and the whole family.
