Videos and pictures from Oslo Life Science 2020
Thanks to all who attended the 5-year anniversary of the Oslo Life Science Conference! Several of the events were filmed, so if you missed any of them, or want to see them again, you may watch them now. You find the links in the captions in the image carousel below. The overarching topics for the events were health research, health industry, environmental research and sustainability.
Six new research groups have been admitted to UiO:Life Science´s innovation programme SPARK Norway. The teams will develop their ideas within health-related life sciences for the benefit of patients and society. Three of the projects were on stage at the main event of the Oslo Life Science Conference 2020. Watch their talks.

Events with support from UiO:Life Science
17–18 September: The Norwegian Cancer Symposium 2020
Interdisciplinary research collaboration after speed-dating
UiO:Life Science supports 14 interdisciplinary research groups, so-called convergence environments. They were selected through application processes that started with speed-dating between researchers from various disciplines.
A group of researchers who met there, but did not get through the eye of the needle, have worked on the project sketches, both individually and together, and have received a total of NOK 24 million from programs in the Research Council of Norway. The sister projects "Prisoner health in healthy prisons: Punishment, marginalization, and access to welfare (PRISONHEALTH)" and "PriSUD NORDIC: Diagnosing and treating substance use in prison" are led by Professor Thomas Ugelvik at the Faculty of Law and researcher Anne Bukten at the Faculty of Medicine. They will, among other things, collaborate on events. The projects are interdisciplinary and combine perspectives from social science, medicine, law and statistics.
