Hörsal Arvid Carlsson, Academicum, Medicinaregatan 3
Note - seminar in Swedish. Sahlgrenska Academy's employees, students and other people connected to our faculty are welcome to a lecture with Bo Håkansson, who in 2020 was appointed honorary doctor of medicine. The lecture is followed by a festive mingle outside the venue.
Bo Håkansson is a professor of electrical engineering at Chalmers University of Technology. His world-leading research on the transmission of sound waves in human bone has led to a hearing aid, anchored in the skull bone, which is today available all over the world and has been vital for people with hearing loss.
Read more about the appointment as an honorary doctor in the article about Bo Håkansson’s appointment, in June 2020.
May 4th is the new date for this Celebration lecture, as the Conferment of Doctoral Degrees that was planned to be held in March had to be canceled due to the pandemic.
