Inauguration of Professors, Uppsala University

The Inauguration of Professors is a public ceremony where newly appointed professors are installed in office by the Vice-Chancellor.

The Inauguration serves two main purposes. One is an expression of welcome, a reception for new professors joining the circle of colleagues. The second, and most important, is to showcase the subject area in each case, a form of research report in the form of lectures given in connection with the Inauguration.

To attend the inauguration ceremony one needs to obtain tickets. Tickets can be collected in the foyer of the University Main Building from 10.00 am on Thursday 18 November until 3.00 pm on Friday 19 November.
