There is an air of tradition as we gather here in the university auditorium. Although LTH is only 50 years old, the university as a whole is nearing the ripe old age of 350. Our role in society has always been that of knowledge bearers, knowledge developers, and knowledge conveyor. It is sometimes surprising that so much has remained the same. We still attend lectures, we take our exams in examination rooms, and mostly exams are still paper-based. You need a sharpened pencil – just as it was one hundred years ago.
