Wednesday March 11, the day before our Prime Minister Erna Solberg declared Norway’s lockdown, we had the pleasure of hosting Professor Matthew Cook for our weekly CET lunch seminar. Little did we know that this would be the last time we would meet over sandwiches in the 6th floor. At least for the time being.

As we move into our second week of lockdown, our CET lunches are continuing like business as usual. This time as a virtual lunch series. Dr. Dorothy Dankel braved the first experiment and gave us a great overview of her #LoVeSeSDG project last Wednesday. We are really happy with the turnout and although we missed the sandwiches from Godt Brød, it was great connecting to the network. This time with people from all over Norway. 

This week, Wednesday MArch 25, we are excited to have our newest professor II at CET, Professor Kevin Anderson for our second CET Virtual Lunch Seminar. Kevin Anderson is a professor of energy and climate change at the University of Manchester and Uppsala University. Anderson will present on the following theme: How closely do the mitigation proposals of ‘climate progressive’ nations align with the Paris Agreement?

Wednesday, April 1 Professor Stein W. Wallace from the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) will be joining us to present Future freight distribution in Bergen. Stein W. Wallace is a Professor of Operational Research and leader of the Centre for Shipping and Logistics at NHH and leads the newly funded project CITYFREIGHT: Freight logistics in sustainable cities

The University of Bergen has closed its doors until Easter and we will do our best to connect with our network through hosting our regular lunch seminars. We look forward to meeting again on the 6th floor, however, we are excited about the possibilities that lie in these digital solutions.
