KTH invites new professors and guests to the following banquet. The banquet will be held at Spegelsalen, Grand Hôtel.

We suggest a baby sitter for your children if possible, rather than bringing them to the ceremony/banquet. It is not a suitable environment for children.


The dresscode 'white tie' is strictly required for new professors who attends the ceremony. This attire is also desirable for guests taking part in the banquet.

For additional information regarding the ceremony and everything around it, please contact Master of Ceremonies Hanna Sundelin, E-mail:
