Days of Knowledge
Did you miss this year’s Days of Knowledge? See the afternoon’s programme recorded here.
Days of Knowledge is an annual celebration of education and research at the University of Borås. This year's Days of Knowledge was a part of International Week.
The University of Borås, City of Borås, Sparbanksstiftelsen Sjuhärad and Swedbank Sjuhärad stand for the event. The day is an offshoot from Sparbanksstiftelsen Sjuhärad's traditional gala in which they award prizes within sport, culture, and education in the region of Sjuhärad. During the evening, an event is arranged for specially-invited guests in which Sparbanksstifelsen Sjuhärad will award contributions to research projects as well as the Social Media Prize.
Among other things, there was a panel discussion on sustainable design with contributions from Catarina Midby, Sustainability Manager at H&M, and Mariko Takahashi, international guest designer at the Swedish School of Textiles.
New this year was the award ceremony of Sparbanksstiftelsen Sjuhärad's Social Media Prize in the evening. The winner Wikimedia Sverige gave a lecture during the afternoon. Both staff and students were also awarded scholarships in different areas.
