The NORA consortium is a collaboration between eight universities, two university colleges and four research institutes and was established to strengthen Norwegian research, education and innovation within artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics.

Klas Pettersen is CEO of NORA. He was originally educated as a civil engineer in physics with a diploma within quantum mechanics. He received a PhD in computational neuroscience in 2007. The last years before he started as the CEO of NORA he worked as a research scientist at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Oslo.

About the seminar series

Once a month, dScience will invite you to join us for lunch, soft drinks and professional talks at the Science Library. In addition to these, we will serve lunch to PhD candidates in our lounge in Kristine Bonnevies hus every Thursday. Due to limited space (40 people), this will be first come, first served. See how to find us here (download).

Our lounge can also be booked by PhDs and Postdocs on a regular basis, whether it is for a meeting or just to hang out – we have fresh coffee all day long! Read more about the seminar series here.
