Med början 2005 hålls vid KTH varje år Göran Gustafssonföreläsningar i matematik. Föreläsarna hör till de främsta i världen (i några fall mottagare av Fieldsmedaljen, matematikens ”nobelpris”). De tillbringar upp till en vecka vid KTH och ger då en inledande och mer populär föreläsning inom sitt forskningsområde följt av två specialiserade föreläsningar. Dessutom ges lokala matematikforskare möjlighet att träffa föreläsarna för informella diskussioner.

Vid Uppsala universitet hålls, i något mindre omfattning, motsvarande Göran Gustafssonföreläsningar inom medicin.
