Hans Rausing Lecture

The Hans Rausing lecture is a public lecture on the history of science delivered by a distinguished international scholar. In  2002 Uppsala University established the Hans Rausing Chair in History of Science in recognition of the scientific achievements of Professor Tore Frängsmyr who became its first holder. The chair is named after Hans Rausing, one of Swedens most illustrious industrialists and father of the donor Dr. Lisbet Rausing. With the endowment the Rausing family wanted to secure the highest scholarly standards of research in the Office for History of Science at Uppsala University. In the annual Hans Rausing Lecture leading foreign scholars provide current international perspectives on the history of science. The lecture is given at the beginning of the academic year, generally in October.
