corell_maggaDr. Robert Corell, pictured here with EALÁT project leader Ole Henrik Magga was recently appointed as Professor II at the Sami University College will be adding another feather to his cap, when the Norwegian School of Veterinary Medecine will be awarding him an Honourary Doctorship in a ceremony that will be taking place on September 1, 2010 in Oslo. Dr. Corell has been actively engaged in the EALÁT project since its inception and he has been actively involved in various aspects of the work of EALÁT and the International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry.

The ceremony will be attended by none other than Harald V, the King of Norway. EALÁT project leader Svein Mathisen and International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry Director Anders Oskal will also attend the ceremony which is being held in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of the Vet School. From the Vet School web page, Corell is being awarded the Doctorship because he  "has in this regard for quite some time been working with reindeer herders in Kautokeino and researchers associated with EALÁT project where NVH has had a visible role. Corell is also currently a professor at the University of the Artic, the Institute for Circumpolar Reindeer Husbandry in Kautokeino." The ceremony covers two days (Sept 1-2) and Corell will make a keynote presentation to the audience. You can read the advance programme for the ceremony here on the NVH site.
