Inaguration of new professors

The inaguration of new professors will take place at Musikaliska March 31 2022. The date has been altered due circumstances concerning covid-19.

New professors between September 1st 2019 - August 31st 2021 will be invited with partner.

From early August a film team is set to make a short introduction film ( approx 40 sec.) for each new professor. Instructions and time schedule for this will be sent to your e-mail. The promoted new professors will be inaugurated on the stage, during the ceremony and at the same time the film will be shown to the audience.

Affiliated- visiting- and adjunct professors, are also invited to the ceremony and banquet, with partner. Those categories will be mentioned in the printed program and also with a photo on the screen, when the president presents the new professors.

Registration for new Professors will open January 2022.

KTH invites new professors with partner, free of charge, 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:
