Celebration of the University of Gdańsk - report

20 March 2021 marks the 51st anniversary of the establishment of the University of Gdańsk.

This year, due to pandemic restrictions, we could not celebrate together. However, earlier, as a precautionary measure, the Rector, prof. Piotr Stepnowski presented medals of the 50th anniversary to a divided group of distinguished employees of the University, and the winners of the prof. Karol Taylor scientific and Krzysztof Celestyn Mrongowiusz teaching awards with statuettes. We have prepared a film of these small celebrations for you, so that we could at least enjoy another anniversary together.

We invite you to watch the film.
