Young GEO scientists present their research (chair: Gunn Mangerud)
In these last years the Department of Earth Sciences has been so fortunate to see four of its talented candidates awarded with the Bergen Research Foundation (Bergens forskningsstiftelse, BFS) recruitment scholarship. The scholarship aims to attract outstanding candidates to the University of Bergen and is open to all disciplines. This year we want to let GEOs four BFS candidates present their research and their projects. The last two were awarded in December 2016 and just started in January 2017
