Tradition in new vestments

Last week ended with a beautiful inauguration of our new professors in the Concert Hall in Gothenburg. It’s truly a privilege, dressed in the Vice-Chancellor’s gown and chain, to inaugurate our new professors. At the same time, we also highlight our pedagogical role models that have received the pedagogical prizes, and the excellent teacher award.

This year we introduced a new feature, with short films that presented the researchers in their environment and everyday life, and we got an insight in their commitment to their field. The ceremony became livelier, and to my understanding it was a much-appreciated feature. This way of renewing and reinventing traditions characterises my view of the University of Gothenburg.

A very warm thank you to all people involved in making this beautiful tradition a memorable ceremony.
