This year, as in previous years, the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry has announced prizes for the publication of the year, the research group of the year, the PhD-work of the year, as well as a prize for outstanding research dissemination. Each institute may suggest up to two candidates within each category.
So far one suggestion for the publication of the year has been submitted. Thus there is plenty of room for more suggestions and there is definitely not a lack of strong candidates at K2. For each suggestion a brief justification report should be attached. More information about the criteria for each prize category can be found here (in Norwegian only).
There you will also find an overview of previous winners.This is a great opportunity also for younger colleagues to make a mark; in addition there is a cash award. I encourage all research groups to consider if they have candidates relevant for the various prizes. Suggestions should be sent to Irene by March 24
Friday 14/3 the IT staff must perform necessary maintenance on the storage solution that contains the public areas of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. This includes the P: in Windows, and you may also have different project areas covered by this connected to other letters.
Between 19:00 and 22:00 Friday 14/3 there will be a break of up to an hour while we perform necessary maintenance. It is therefore recommended to log out before going home and not work during this time. If these areas do not work after 22:00 14/3 it is recommended to do a reboot and it will work again.
This is an emergency that we need to get completed and we apologize strongly for disadvantages that entails!
In case of problems, contact Brita at 55584700 (during office hours) or register a case in problemdatabasen.
Academic staff at K2 must reserve September 17 for the annual Exam and Education Seminar from 12:00 to 19:00.

Folkeuniversitetet will hold a course in national subjects for foreign health workers March 24-26 and June 2-5. The course leader had to cancel, so Folkeuniversitetet is now seeking a replacement. The course leader will only lecture for a few hours (4 hours about the organization of the health services). Most of the lectures will be held with sound/image, or by other local lecturers in the field of law. Even so, they need a course leader who can be there all 3+2 days to organize, answer questions and lead discussions.

IT-Forum 2014 will be held April 7-8 at Solstrand Hotel & Bad at Os. IT-Forum is an annual seminar for those who use and deliver IT-services at UoB, and their local and regional collaborators. This year the theme is “What do IT have to do to get UoB to reach their goals? Information technology can give us better research, dissemination and teaching, but how?”
They need people who can hold a presentation about which IT-needs the research community has. In addition, they need panel members for debates about the same issue. They ask for a quick feedback about potential candidates that they can contact.
