The next inaugural lectures will be held in May 2021 as a New professors' week. Watch the previous lectures on the University of Helsinki YouTube channel.
Newly appointed professors are celebrated at the university twice a year: usually in May and in December. As they take up their new role, each professor holds a public inaugural lecture. The lectures are open for everyone.
Usually, newly appointed professors are celebrated through inaugural lectures, which take place during a single day and are popular public presentations of the professors’ fields and personal research topics. Normally, each lecture lasts 15-20 minutes, and audience members have the opportunity to move from one lecture venue to another between lectures.
During the coronavirus situation, the professorial lectures have transformed into an online event: New professors’ week. It lasts for five days. Each lecture lasts roughly 15 minutes and focuses on the professors’ research topics.
