Chalmers welcomed new professors

​On 23 September it was time for Chalmers' professorial inauguration in Runan. The professors started their activities at Chalmers on 1 July 2020 until 30 June 2022.​
The professor installation is an old tradition at Chalmers and an important part of welcoming new professors while spreading information about the subject areas in which the professors work.
A total of 22 professors were installed during the evening. At the same time, artistic professors, adjunct professors, visiting professors, affiliated professors, and research professors were also presented.

There is also an increase in the number of female professors
"It is with pleasure that I can state that we are slowly equalizing the gender balance at the professorial level. This year, 32 percent of the installed professors are women, and the proportion of women in Chalmers' professors' college has increased to around 18 percent," says Stefan Bengtsson, Principal at Chalmers.
Conference speaker Philip Wramsby welcomed and guided the guests during the evening. Both the rector and union chairman Isac Stark gave speeches. Newly installed professor Maria Abrahamsson gave a speech in physical chemistry. 

The entertainment was provided by Duratrion and the Chalmers choir. After the ceremony, a dinner was held at Kårrestaurangen where all participants' families and friends could celebrate together with the new professors. Since 1959, Chalmers alumnus and composer Jan Johansson's work "Life is beautiful" has traditionally opened all Chalmers sessions. Due to associations with Russia and the war in Ukraine, it has been replaced with "Here comes Pippi Longstocking", another famous piece by Jan Johansson. During the dinner, Professor Àrni Halldòrsson gave a speech.
