After the ceremony in Arabidopsis auditorium, doctors and the audience proceed to the lobby, where the doctors will "sow the seeds of knowledge".
This is a symbolic act representing research and sciences and their ability to grow, mature and bear fruits and ultimately new seeds, similarly to the life cycle of plant seeds.
The ceremony starts in Arabidopsis auditorium in the Biotechnology Building at 2 p.m. on Friday 23 September and ends approximately at 3.30 p.m., when the doctors and their invited guests proceed to the banquet in the Economy Building.
