Academic Ceremonies and other annual ceremonies

The University of Gothenburg organises two academic ceremonies annually: the Conferment of Doctoral Degrees and the Inauguration of New Professors. The ceremonies represent both tradition and renewal. Their long history helps create continuity and community within the University. They also point to the renewal of knowledge that both new doctors and new professors represent.
