Weekly video update from the Dean

This week, the Dean informs about the decision not to admit any students for the application development degree programme this fall as well as the pilot project to implement digital written examinations at Malmö university. See more about the digitalization initiative in English here https://digi.mau.se/wiki/The_Digitalization_Initiative and in Swedish and listen to the podd  https://www.mah.se/medarbetare/Ledning-och-organisation/Projekt/Verksamhetsutveckling/Digitalisering/.

Also, the Dean warns that due to building glass walls, both DVMT and MTM office spaces will be rather messy in the coming months. Finally, suggest your candidate for an honorary doctorate by 25 March, to be celebrated in October, and nominate for the alumni of the year by 1 April, to be celebrated on the TS graduation ceremony on 28th May

TS has sent in total five applications to the Crafoord foundation, Mats Persson should be credited along with the researchers mentioned in the vlog. On Monday, the post graduate school on data driven systems, DDS, kicked off, and next Friday, Helena Holmström Olsson will hold her installation lecture as full professor (see blog post below).
