Chalmers welcomed the new professors

The 18th of March, it was finally time to present the professors at Chalmers designated from the 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2020 at the inauguration of professors in ​Runan. Because of the pandemic, the ceremony was delayed by one and a half year. 
The ceremony is important for sharing information and increasing the visibility of the subject areas the new professors represent. In total it was 32 new professors installed at Chalmers. Presented was also those who have taken up an adjunct professorship, artistic professorship, guest professorship, affiliated professorship, research professorship, or a professor of the practice position at Chalmers. 

The number of women as professors at Chalmers is increasing. 
- It is with pleasure that I can state that we are slowly levelling the gender balance at the professor level. This year, 29 percent of the installed professors are women, and the proportion of women in the Professor’s Faculty Assembly has increased to about 17 percent, says Stefan Bengtsson, President of Chalmers.
  

The master of ceremonies Philip Wramsby guided the guests during the festive evening. Gosskören and Chalmers sångkör were the entertainment of the night. Both the President of Chalmers and the president of the Student Union Catrin Lindberg held a speech. The newly installed professor Björn Johansson also held a lecture during the event. 


After the ceremony, a delightful dinner was held in Kårrestaurangen where the new professors finally were able to celebrate with their family and friends. The traditional song "Livet är härligt" composed by Jan Johansson has introduced all the events at Chalmers since 1959 and originates from Chalmersspexet Katarina ll. This evening it was replaced by another song: "Här kommer Pippi Långstrump" by the same composer. The reason behind the change was due to the war in Ukraine and that the previous song was associated with Russia. The newly installed professor ​Magdalena Svanström also held a speech during the evening to her new collegues of professors.
