The doctoral conferment ceremony is the major annual ceremony and academic celebration where the University faculties award and honour those who have completed their doctorates, as well as appointed honourary doctorates. Three honourary doctors for LTH are appointed at Lund University on this day; Professor José van Dijck, on recommendations from LTH for her work on bridging the gap between social sciences and technology. Professor Tord Kjellström for his engagement in environmental studies and global health, and Dr. Arne Staby for his internationally renowned work within biomedicine and biotechnology.

The new doctors are honoured with symbols of the doctoral dignity: diploma, ring, hat or laurel wreath – which are the traditional insignia of the doctorate. As part of the doctoral conferment ceremony at Lund University, Wendes Artillery Regiment assists the University in saluting the jubilee doctors with two cannon shots, the honorary doctors with one shot and the new doctors at each faculty with three shots.

LTH wish to congratulate the following researches for completing their doctoral degree and for having defended their thesis at LTH:
