On Wednesday, April 17 at 4.15 p.m., Professor of Astronomy Elmo Tempel will deliver his inauguration speech "The Universe through the Eyes of an Astronomer" at the Assembly Hall of the University of Tartu.
In the speech, Tempel will describe the universe as it looks to an astronomer. He will also discuss how his research will help to fill the gaps in our knowledge of the Universe and what can be expected from the observation programmes that will be planned over the next years.
The purpose of the ceremonial inauguration speech is to give the new professor of the university a chance to introduce himself, his discipline and goals for colleagues within the field and elsewhere, students, and also the general public outside of university. A professor delivers his inauguration speech within the first year of working.
