Tampere University’s doctoral conferment causes exceptional traffic arrangements in the city centre
Tampere University’s doctoral conferment causes exceptional traffic arrangements in the city centre at 15.30–17.00 on Saturday 13 August.
After the conferment ceremony, the promoters, honorary and regular doctors, university leadership and professors walk in an academic procession to a church service at Tampere Cathedral. This causes exceptional traffic arrangements.
The route of the procession is Tampere-talo – Yliopistonkatu – Tammelan puistokatu – Kullervonkatu – Erkkilänkatu – Rautatienkatu – Tuomiokirkko.
The procession leaves Tampere Hall at 15.55.
There will be exceptional traffic arrangements and roadblocks along the route. The Itsenäisyydenkatu street will be completely closed off to other motor traffic than trams.
Traffic marshals will guide the traffic at the roadblocks.
The exceptional arrangements will also spread to the streets of Tulli, Tammela and Juhannuskylä more widely.
The new multidisciplinary Tampere University holds its first doctoral Conferment Ceremony on 12–14 August 2022. Tampere University confers 244 doctorates and 14 honorary doctorates at its first conferment ceremony.
The ceremonial conferment of doctoral degrees is the most prestigious academic celebration and tradition that spans several centuries. The main event, Conferment Ceremony, is organised at Tampere Hall on Saturday 13 August. The Conferment Ceremony is an open event, which can be watched on-site in the Main Auditorium of Tampere Hall without prior registration. The event is also streamed online and can be watched via the Conferment Ceremony website www.events.tuni.fi/conferment2022/.
