Read about all the highlights from the spring semester
At this years one-day PhD seminar, 25 of our PhD candidates from 13 nations and 5 continents (!) assembled to get to know each other within and across the research groups, and get some helpful tips for the years ahead.
Can the financial sector be a powerful force in tackling climate change?
I remember reading the following sentence in the announcement of my current post-doc position as part of the dCod project: “The work will involve close collaboration with research groups both from biology and from mathematics”. I thought it was an interesting ambition, but I wasn’t sure how close would this collaboration be and how would it be organized. I guess the scheduled biweekly dCod... Read more
Over the course of three days (9-11 May), seven BCCR and Ice2Ice researchers participated in a glacier safety course on the Folgefonna glacier.
GEO had a strong showing at the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) Annual Convention and Exhibition held in Salt Lake City, 20-23 May.
Some notes from the Utah course GEOV352
In their very first meeting, the board of The Norwegian Marine University Consortium (NMUC) had talks with the executives from the European Marine Board.  The next step is to shape the consortium into a vital bridgehead for cooperation with the EU.
The first AQUACOSM group has arrived at UiB's Marine Biological Station. The international team of scientists are here to study the coccolithophore Emiliania huxleyi.
Ferries and fast passenger boats in Western Norway could run on hydrogen produced from waste in the future!
Former EECRG Professor II Kathy Willis has been appointed as the next Principal (=Master or Head of House) of St Edmund Hall, one of the University of Oxford's colleges.
An international research team led by Uni Research Environment and the University of Bergen will explore how filter-feeding zooplankton can trap, ingest, disperse and potentially preserve virus particles in the marine environment.
Understanding the structure and relationships of biomolecules is important for discovering new medicines and materials. Three-dimensional bimolecular structures are often geometrically complex making it difficult to predict functional properties of molecules based on their structures. Recently, the new field of topological data analysis has shown some promise in improving the prediction of... Read more
Small fish have huge potential to alleviate malnutrition and safeguard food security in Sub-Saharan Africa and across the globe. An interdisciplinary project headed by the University of Bergen has been awarded 1 million Euros.
Eleven past and present members of EECRG are co-authors on the paper "Accelerated increase in plant species richness on mountain summits is linked to warming" published in the 12 April issue of Nature
With climate change cases topping number 1000 around the world, who is next? Is there a long leap from companies to investors and pension funds? Should we expect, or plan against, a (further) climate case against Statoil and a climate case against “Oljefondet”?
