December 19 2016: 350th Anniversary Jubilee Celebrations start!

Lund University is celebrating its 350th anniversary for 13 months – from 19 December 2016 until 28 January 2018. With an extensive jubilee programme, we will highlight our education, research and role in society over the years, and discuss important issues for the future.

The celebrations will be possible to follow on our website

For the special occasion Jubilee stamps have been created and I sent a “snail mail” in style! Professor Bairbre Redmond, the new U21 Network Provost, and a dear colleague from University College Dublin, is the recipient of my postcard.


There are two stamp designs for the University. One depicts the sphinxes on the roof of the main University building, reflecting our history – this is the one I chose for Baribre. The other design depicts the world-leading synchrotron radiation facility MAX IV, hosted by Lund University, and which represents the cutting-edge research conducted here. You can read more about the stamp launch here.

No celebration without a jubilee book! The Swedish book has been translated into English with the title “ Lund University over 350 years – History and Stories.” For information see here.

Congratulations dear old Alma Mater.

Let the party begin!
