Big day today. Today I received my “Promotion sub auspiciis presidentis rai republica“. This kind of promotion is given to PhD with an outstanding performance by the president of Austria. (approx. 10 PhDs per year, out of 2.500 who finish their studies). Honestly, It was one of the greatest days in my life. My whole family was there, my colleagues from work and of the course the president. (He is actually a very nice guy). Just have a look at the pictures to get an idea, what a great honour and pleasure this was for me.
