The title Honorary Professor is a title of honor. Formally, there are no obligations with the title, but it is usually awarded in connection with a closer collaboration with an external artist.
At the universities, Honorary Professors typically hold lectures.
In conservatory context, Honorary Professors hold masterclasses, take part in concerts etc. In addition, they have an important function as both an inspiration and a form of ambassador for the institution.
