Ring of Honour for Christian Smekal

The professor emeritus of public finance, former vice-chancellor, former president of senate and chairman of the university council a.D. Christian Smekal, received the highest achievable award of our university on 26 June 2018.

Rector Univ.-Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Tilmann Märk awarded Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christian Smekal with the highest achievable award of the university on Tuesday evening, 26 June 2018. The professor emeritus of public finance, former Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, former Vice-Chancellor, former President of Senate and Chairman of the University Council a.D., is only the second laureate of the award following former Vice-Chancellor Hans Moser. „I am very happy to honour Christian Smekal's achievements at and for the Leopold-Franzens-University today“, said Rector Univ.-Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Tilmann Märk during the ceremony. „The special nature of this honour lies also in its exclusivity, since the guidelines of this high award limit the amount of laureates to five living award winners.“ Four laudatory speeches by Roland Psenner (Eurac Research), Engelbert Theurl (Department of Public Finance), Ivo Hajnal (Chairman of Senate) and Werner Ritter (Chairman of the University Council) speak for themselves: Christian Smekal is a more than worthy laureate of this reknown award. Congratulations!
