The award ceremony at Vetenskapen hus is part of the Academic Ceremony week. This years recipients of the university's pedagogical award, the distinguished and recognized university teacher awards, and the award for development efforts within professional services were presented and handed diplomas and flowers by Pro Vice-Chancellor Cathrine Norberg.

Many of the laureates were happy and also moved by beeing recognized. The award for development efforts within professional services draws attention to staff who otherwise work in the background.
“In order for the university to function, the work from support staff is also needed. Those who work with professional services often goes unnoticed when everything runs smoothly. That's why we want to recognize this work as well,” said Cathrine Norberg.
