Early this morning, cannon salutes and Cathedral bells resounded across Uppsala. Today we have celebrated 84 new doctoral graduates, 17 honorary doctors and 13 prizewinners at our University in the traditional grand ceremony. Congratulations!

The speech at this year’s Conferment Ceremony was given by the degree conferrer of the Faculty of Science and Technology, Professor Roland Roberts, who spoke on the subject of science and humankind. Read more about the ceremony and traditions here.

After the ceremony in the Grand Auditorium, celebrations continue at the faculties’ receptions, followed in the evening by a banquet at Uppsala Castle.
