New email routine at K2

Being on top of ones inbox in a continuously busy workweek is turning into a challenging task. Regretfully, sometimes emails are lost or forgotten.

Pål and myself have therefore decided upon changing the current routines. From now on all enquiries to the K2 Head of department shall be sent to post@k2.uib.no, in order to ensure a best possible case process. This email will be read by head of department or his acting head of department, who together will be better equipped to reply and expedite the email.

This change is effectuated as of from now.

Wishing you a nice weekend,

Eystein Husebye,
Acting head of department
