This year’s Academic Celebration reflects passion for research2023-10-04
The Academic Celebration is one of the biggest events of the year at Karlstad University and a long-standing tradition. On 20 October it is time again and this year we celebrate passion for research – we present and inauguarate our new Vice-Chancellor Jerker Moodysson during this year's celebration. With great pomp and ceremony we will promote our new doctors, award honorary doctorates and inaugurate our new professors. We will also pay attention to this year’s docents and adjunct professors.
Research requires an unconditional interest in your field of expertise, a willingness and drive that take you through months of hard work before finally reaching your goal of a doctoral thesis or research paper. A passionate story that requires complete focus. In the noise of today’s society, science has perhaps never been more important and researchers are needed now more than ever. Therefore, the theme of this year’s Academic Celebration is passion.
Formal celebration with a warm atmosphere
This year we present 5 new professors at Karlstad CCC in Lerinsalen at 09.00-11.30. The event at CCC will also include a discussion with the university’s two new honorary doctors, led by moderator Jan van Stam, Professor of Physical Chemistry.
