Hva er de samfunnsøkonomiske kostnadene av at kvinner blir rammet av bekkenleddsmerter?

Landsforeningen for kvinner med bekkenleddsmerter er særlig interessert i få belyst det samfunnsøkonomiske tapet knyttet til frafall fra arbeidslivet, både på kort og lang sikt, samt hvordan dette tapet fordeler seg på det offentlige, arbeidsgiverne og den enkelte kvinne og hennes familie.

Et stipend på kr 20 000,- tildeles en student som i sin masteroppgave vil jobbe med den aktuelle problemstillingen.

Studenten må levere sin oppgave i løpet av 2018, og vedkommende må skrive et ikke-teknisk sammendrag av oppgaven som er forståelig for folk uten bakgrunn fra økonomi....

From April 18th you are not allowed to wear watches during exams at the University of Oslo. The reason for that is that there is a lot of new smart watches on the market, and it is not possible to distinguish these from the traditional watches. The clocks must henceforth be put in bags, jacket pockets or the like along with mobile phones, MP3 players and other electronic equipment.

Wearing a wristwatch during the examination could be considered an attempt to cheat on an equal footing with other illegal aids. It will be visible clocks in all the examination premises.
