Registration for the Conferment and Inauguration Ceremony is now open

2018-09-21

This year’s Conferment and Inauguration Ceremony takes place at Malmö Live on October 19. All University students, alumni and staff are welcome!

The Conferment and Inauguration Ceremony is a party for Malmö University staff and students. During the evening we will celebrate employees who, after many years of hard work within academia, will be awarded doctoral titles or inaugurated as professors at Malmö University.

Programme

The celebration kicks off with a ceremony at Malmö Live from 16.00 to 18.00. The ceremony will start with a procession, during which the new professors and doctors will be presented and the three traditional insignia — the doctoral hat, diploma and ring — will be handed out. The award for this year’s best thesis will be granted, as well as the Stefan Bengstsson Award and other prizes. There will also be music and entertainment provided by Malmö University’s Academic Choir and Orchestra and other guest artists.

Mingle with students and staff

From 18.00 onwards, all registered guests are welcome to the "Academic Lounge" on the ground floor of the Niagara building, just across the street from Malmö Live. You’ll be offered a glass of sparkling wine on arrival and will have the opportunity to congratulate the new doctors and professors. To ensure participation, please make sure to sign up by October 12.
