Honorary Skou Professors at Health

About the Honorary Skou Professors

Honorary Skou Professors is the term used to describe the 47 new adjunct professors who have joined the faculty since spring of 2018. With the initiative, the faculty management team wishes to introduce new perspectives to teaching, strengthen relations with leading research units abroad and establish joint research projects and funding applications.

The Skou Professors will actively participate in the academic work of the individual departments. This could be as guest lecturers and co-supervisors on PhD projects, in the form of research partnerships and joint funding applications or as guest lecturers at symposiums and conferences.

In order to help the Skou professors get to know their respective departments in the best way, each of them has a ‘champion’ affiliated, who is their academic contact person at the department and is charged with helping to smooth the start of the collaboration and ensure that the Skou professors are integrated in the academic environments.
