Each year the Faculty of Science and Technology arranges the Celsius-Linnaeus honorary lectures in memory of Anders Celsius (1701-1744) astronomer and physicist, and Carl von Linné (1707-1778), physician and botanist, who were professors at Uppsala University.
The appointed Celsius-Linnaeus lecturers are at today's forefront of research within their fields and ten of the prevously selected lecturers have been awarded a Nobel Prize.
This year's Celsius-Linnaeus Lectures took place on February 9-10 at Ångström Laboratory. Since Uppsala University celebrates "300 years of weather statistics - from Celsius until today" i 2022, the Celsius-Linnaeus committee noticed this by inviting three Celsius-lecturers and two Linnaeus-lecturers with subsequent symposium.
