"A university requires terrific academics to thrive", emphasised Frauke Melchior. "We are proud to have you with us as newly appointed professors. You have chosen a truly wonderful university," said the Rector of Ruperto Carola at the reception for the academics who were recently appointed to Heidelberg University.

The university public was invited to get to know the newly appointed professors, who introduced themselves in short talks with information on their professional background and their main research areas. The Rector encouraged them to commit themselves to the university not only as teachers and researchers, but with their entire personality.

The event in the Great Hall of the Old University, which took place on 22 February 2024, was followed by a "finale" and the opportunity for personal discussions and exchange in the Bel Etage.
