Nobel Foundation and Cisco Systems Team Up to Create Nobel Cisco Internet Initiative

As part of its 100th anniversary celebration, the Nobel Foundation has selected Cisco Systems as its Internet technology partner for a broad-reaching initiative aimed at developing the Nobel e-Museum.

The e-Museum, a virtual museum of science and culture established in 1995, uses databases, text, images, streaming audio and video, and 3D virtual reality to inform visitors about the work of the more than 700 Nobel Prize winners.

Cisco will provide state-of-the-art networking technology and expertise to help the foundation expand and enhance the museum.

"Our relationship with Cisco provides the Nobel Foundation with an opportunity to develop the Nobel e-Museum. It will also contribute to explaining the discoveries that created the fundamentals of Information Technology. This content will be part of a new section of NeM called Science and Technology," said Nobel Foundation executive director Michael Sohlman. "Millions of visitors will enjoy higher technical quality, and thanks to Cisco, more dynamic e-learning content."
