Givaudan Karrer Lectureships

The Givaudan/Karrer Lecture series was established in 2005. Each year, a distinguished Givaudan Karrer Visiting Professor visits the University of Zurich for a period of two weeks to three months, and presents a short special topics course to the graduate students as well as a research lecture at Givaudan. The medals awarded in association with this professorship are provided by the Swiss Chemical Society out of the archive of medals cast in 1937, on the occasion of Karrer's Nobel Prize.
