Medicine + Social Sciences – a seminar

September 15th, 09:30 AM – 01:00 PM

Faculty of medicine and Faculty of Social Sciences arrange a joint seminar to encourage more research collaborations between the two areas of scientific disciplines. In the seminar, we will learn about interdisciplinarity from a philosophic point of view and see how multi- and interdisciplinary approaches can be used as a competitive advantage in larger research proposals, such as EU. You will be challenged through practical exercises and academic speed dates. The seminar is arranged at Scandic Bergen City. Lunch is included.

Limited number of places available. Programme details and information about how to register will come after the summer break. Until then – block the date in your calendar!
