The host of the ceremony is Thomas Erdbrink, a Dutch journalist who is the Northern Europe bureau chief for the New York Times. He will lead five talks between the ten laureates. They are linked on a theme that connects their work: 'Our Brain, Our Communication, Our Truth, Our Nature, Our Cells'. This gives the viewers an idea of the people behind the prizes and how big the impact of their work is on our daily lives. The Dutch laureates and the jury are present in the studio. The international laureates attend the award ceremony online from where they live.
