Interdisciplinary summer school on flexible energy systems

The University of Bergen (UiB), the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University of Oslo (UiO) have the pleasure of inviting all PhD-students working within the fields of energy and sustainability to the 2020 interdisciplinary summer school on flexible energy systems. This year’s summer school will take place in the Bergen region. The overall focus will be flexible energy systems with a particular emphasis on wind, solar, hydrogen and the interactions between these technologies. As part of an interdisciplinary approach, the participants will also gain insight into legal and financial framework conditions of the new emerging technologies. We encourage all students working in the field of energy and sustainability to apply. More information can be found here, application deadline is 15 June.

SIOS's Multidisciplinary workshop on snow in Svalbard

SIOS logo titel small 0Snow covers all of Svalbard for up to nine months and affects all spheres of the Earth System. However, we still lack a holistic picture of snow processes and need to develop tools to monitor these processes, and assess risks associated with snow. SIOS is hosting a Multidisciplinary workshop on snow in Svalbard during autumn 2020/winter 20202-21 at Bologna, Italy. We invite scientists from all disciplines affected by snow, local stakeholders in Svalbard and enterprises interested in the development of scientific sensors and technology suitable for measuring snow properties under Arctic conditions.
