Dr. Peter Suedfeld, professor emeritus of psychology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver received on March 28, 2018 a honorary degree from the University of Nîmes. It was the first time that the university confered a degree of Doctor Honoris Causas.

Dr. Peter Suedfeld continues his research and develops, in particular, a project on the psychological consequences of being exposed to extreme environments: space and Arctic circles. For his research, he partners with European researchers, especially with the Concordia Station (French and Italian base in Antarctic). The university community often pays tribute to Dr. Suedfeld who is still involved in it.
