Information for honorary doctors, new professors and award recipients
Welcome to Umeå University’s Annual Celebration on 15 October 2022
This year’s Annual Celebration Ceremony (in Swedish Årshögtiden) takes place on 15 October 2022 and gathers all celebrations from 2020, 2021 and 2022. This means that the number of guests is higher than usual and as a result, the banquet has been relocated to Nolia – a venue often used for large events. The ceremony will still be held in Aula Nordica. After the ceremony, chartered busses will be available to take you the few kilometres to the banquet venue.
The ceremony is expected to take 3.5 hours with a 30-minute break serving refreshments for everyone attending. The overall programme for all all guests of honour, i.e. new professors, award recipients and honorary doctors, is found below.
