On the morning of Wednesday 3/6 from 9-12 with a free lunch afterwards, we will arrange a meeting for researchers from the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine to look at exciting opportunities for research collaboration, education and innovation. A working group from the two faculties aims to develop a creative meeting place for exchange of ideas with potential stakeholders. From MED, Becky Cox, K2, Kristin Mohn, K2 and Bjarne Robberstad, IGS will be participating.
Examples of interfaces between SV and MED are health economics and epidemics, but also registry and cancer research. SV, has for example good expertise in health economics, behavior, population studies and politics. We believe a collaboration with SV can enhance MEDFAK projects starting with from basic science, through to the clinic, behavior, decisions and health economics to priorities / policies. We believe that such knowledge could increase the social benefits of our projects and strengthen the competive opportunities for funding.
Think outside the box about the possibility of collaboration with SV environments, it may pay off in the next application round. This also applies to people in the basic sciences.
If you have something to contribute / gain from such a collaboration, please contact:
or Bjarne Bjarne.Robberstad@uib.no
or just set the date and show up 3/6.
The meeting will be advertised in due course.
