The Opera and Ballet award was first established in 2009, and is awarded annually by the Tom Wilhelmsen Foundation.
The Wilhelmsen group has a cooperation agreement with the international humanitarian organisation Right To Play, which uses sport and play as an arena for development and peace.
We are proud supporters of a professorship in martime research together with the Norwegian Business School (BI). The agreement, with the intention to further develop the BI Centre for Ocean Business, was established in 2006 and will secure funding from 2020-2022.
