A great prize for a great effort Show/Hide content

The most important thing that a university does is to educate people, and teachers who stimulate others to learn are worthy of all the encouragement we can give them. We want in this way to demonstrate that teachers are just as important to a university as researchers.
Ingemar Ingemarsson, Professor Emeritus at LiU and the person who founded the Ingemar Teaching Prize.
