New Series: dScience Lunch Seminars

Now that the pandemic is coming closer to an end, we are thrilled to finally be able to get together for some exciting activities! One of dScience’s most important tasks is to create and run meeting places, and we are kicking it all off on October 14 in the Science Library.

Our lunch seminars will officially start on October 14 with talks by Luca Galimberti from NTNU and Morten Dæhlen, centre leader at dScience. This will take place in the Science Library. Please read more about the event here.

Following this, we invite PhD candidates and postdocs to join us for lunch at our dScience Lounge every Thursday. Here, there will be food, soft drinks and coffee/tea available from 11:30. Short talks will also be given. These lunches will be held every week until December 16, then we will take a short Christmas break. In 2022, we will serve lunch from January 13 to June 16.

Once a month, these lunches will be held in the Science Library with professional talks by internal/external speakers.
