Jens ScherpeJens Scherpe has been awarded an Honorary Professorship by the University of Aalborg (Denmark) for five years commencing 1 April 2018.

This title (which in Danish reads 'adjungeret professor') can be conferred by institutions under the Danish University Act for a maximum of five years 'on persons of a high professional standing, whom the institution wants to honour and thus attach closer to the university'.

Reacting to the announcement, Jens said:

"I am delighted to be honoured in this way, not least because my family originates from this part of Denmark. I am looking forward to working with colleagues from Aalborg on various projects, including seminars for PhD students." 

Jens' inaugural lecture will take place on 5 October 2018 when the Department celebrates its 10 year anniversary.
