Planning and Organization

From Planning to Holding the Inaugural Lecture

Newly appointed professors and privatdozents usually get an opportunity to plan an inaugural lecture within a year of their appointment. 

The following flow chart shows the key stages in the planning process for inaugural lectures. Inaugural lectures are planned and executed by a team made up of members of the President's Services, Eventmanagement and the Room Allocation Services in cooperation with other organisational units of the university.
