On March 6 2019, we celebrated our University by awarding distinguished researchers and teachers. The awards were donated by the Jyväskylä University Foundation, Ellen and Artturi Nyyssönen Foundation and Aino Sallinen Trust. 

The evening's entertainment featured high-spirited Irish folk with a new local 7 piece band VUO and body percussion group KOPS. The event was hosted by actors from Impovisation Theatre JOO!.

You can watch a recording of the event here.
