Professors emeriti

The professor emeritus is an academic figure generally found in all universities worldwide. International tradition bestows the title of Emeritus to the highest academic grade as a final recognition of particularly prestigious scientific and university careers. The title of emeritus is bestowed after retirement according to similar legal criteria adopted by the universities of different countries according to their specific systems. Often the title allows the retired professors to continue cooperating in university activities, allowing them to use the services of departments and the universities.
