Thematic groups SMW-23
Every year we try to attract people working with similar issues, so that we can develop our competence within certain fields every year. This year we offer three thematic groups at SMW-23, :
Career services for Early-Stage Researchers
In academia, there are many more Ph.D. and postdoc positions than what there are further career opportunities. UiB Ferd Career Centre for early-stage researchers opened about a year ago as the first career centre in Norway dedicated to researchers. UiB Ferd aims at supporting researchers in career development, for a career in academia or in other sectors. We offer different types of career events and courses, in addition to career guiding.
UiB Ferd, Career services for researchers; the why, how and what! What does your university offer? We are looking forward to hearing more about it at SMW-23.
Towards a climate neutral university - working together with our students
The university’s greatest contribution to the green transition is to develop knowledge that benefits society through education, research and innovation. But the green transition starts with us, and UiB believe it is of outmost importance to reduce our own climate footprint. How do we accomplish this, and how can we engage our employees and students to contribute?
At SMW-23 we will present some of our efforts and ideas, and we are looking forward to learning more about what you are doing.
Universal design, inclusion, and services for student with special needs.
A university where everyone can participate and discrimination on the grounds of disability do not exist is the ideal, and what we are aiming at. For many years we have worked towards a learning environment designed according to the principles of universal design and with services for students with special needs. Now we have reinforced our efforts and started UiB Universal.
At SMW-23 we want to share with you our plans and experience from UiB Universal, and we hope to meet people within the same field of work and interest.
