Inaugural and farewell lectures Anybody appointed a professor or habilitated lecturer at HSG, holds an inaugural lecture to introduce themselves. Professors going into retirement also say farewell with a lecture. Not just HSG employees, but also you too are welcome to come to these public inaugural and farewell lectures. Similarly to our public lectures, these inaugural and farewell lectures deal with a number of topics: from business and legal issues to cultural and political aspects. Readings The HSG library would be pleased to see you at our bi-yearly event, called "Das andere Buch an der Uni". In addition to reading from their works, the authors enjoy lively discussion with the public about the nature of their works. Other public lectures The Children’s University teaches children about business and legal issues in a way that is easy to understand. The HSG supports regional series of events, the "Monday Forum of Eastern Switzerland". The "Monday Forum" has 16 lectures a year, in that experts will speak about health, philosophy, history and art in the Pfalzkeller. Each day all our public lectures are updated on our welcome page.
