Guidelines for the appointing of honorary doctors and promoters
The LTV faculty's guidelines for the appointment of an honorary doctor have been updated and decided, so that it becomes clearer what the faculty wants to achieve by appointing honorary doctors.
The overall purpose of appointing honorary doctors is that these people can contribute to the development of the faculty, which also offers them opportunities for development in an interesting context. The revision also includes a simplified procedure in the proposal.
No honorary doctors will be appointed for 2021 at any of the faculties due to the fact that the honorary doctors appointed in 2020 have not yet been promoted.
The LTV faculty recruitment plan for higher employment in 2021 was deciced.
