New professors to be inaugurated today
13 November 2015
Following a week of installation lectures, thirty-nine new professors will be inaugurated in the Grand Auditorium at Uppsala University today.
The Inauguration of Professors is a public ceremony with medieval roots where newly appointed professors are installed in office by the Vice-Chancellor and deliver their inaugural addresses. Alongside the Conferment Ceremony for doctorates, inaugural ceremonies for professors are a tradition observed by all Swedish universities and by university colleges with a research dimension.
