The inauguration of new professors at KTH will take place at Grand Hôtel 12 April 2024. Invitation will be sent out in February the same year.

New professors, appointed between 1 December 2022 - 5 November 2023, will be invited with a guest to participate in the ceremony and banquet. They will be given the possibility to invite extra guests to the ceremony. 

From early August a film team is set to make a short introduction film ( approx 50 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 and 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.

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 guests attending the ceremony only, the dress code is dark lounge suit. 

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