Today we installed 25 new professors at a grand ceremony in the University Main Building. The ceremony was the culmination of a week of well-attended public inaugural lectures that gave the audience a fascinating sample of many aspects of our multifaceted University. Read about the professors and their research.
The Inauguration of Professors is a solemn and splendid ceremony in the darkness of November and as always it began with music played by the Royal Academic Orchestra. In the traditional inauguration speech by the Vice-Chancellor, I welcome the new professors to our University. In their new role, they are an important part of the future!
During the ceremony we heard lectures by:
David Håkansson, Faculty of Languages: Sooner or later – the history and story of Swedish.
Tove Fall, Faculty of Medicine: Shortcuts to new remedies.
Philippe Wernet, Faculty of Science and Technology: Has nature already found solutions to the problem of energy?
In addition, we honoured some of our skilful teachers, who received the Distinguished Teaching Award, and this year’s winner of the University’s Innovation Prize ‘Hjärnäpplet’.
