Bradford Inaugurals Lecture Series

The Bradford Inaugurals Lecture series celebrates the promotion of our academics to the position of Professor. This is one of the highest achievements in an academics career; it is a recognition from the University that the academic concerned is operating at the highest level in their field. As such, the promotion is one worthy of celebration by both the academic and the University. The inaugural lecture is a centuries-old tradition; a transition point in the career of an academic, recognising leadership in their chosen field. An inaugural lecture is, therefore, a key milestone in any academic’s career, signifying their promotion to ’Professor’.
