Dear all of you!

This week I was supposed to welcome Pål back as head of department, but after a hectic period with finishing the SFF application, he first takes some well-deserved vacation before he is back at the steering wheel from 1 November. So I get to run the institute a little bit longer 😊

As you hopefully know, all UiB employees have their own personal page where you can upload a photo and enter information about your research field, competence and more. This is very useful and makes it much easier to find people and collaboration partners, and not least it becomes much easier to recognize people when you meet them. I would like to use this leader to encourage everyone to check the page and update the information that is there. It is not difficult to edit (https://manual.uib.no/webmanual/personside/). Rose can help you take a picture.

Greetings from Aarhus where I enjoy being at my first “regular” conference after the corona measures.

Welcome to Open Access Week 2021!

In collaboration with several Norwegian academic libraries, RDA (Research Data Alliance) Norway and ELIXIR Norway, Bergen University Library presents a series of events with topics related to open publishing, open science and data sharing.

Most events are digital and are open to anyone interested.

The webinars before lunch are part of a collaboration between UiB, UiT, HVL, UiS, NTNU, USN, INN and UiO, and you can find more information and sign up for the individual webinars by clicking the links or see here.

The webinars after lunch are local (UiB) and you can sign up for all the local webinars here. You only need to register once if you plan to participate in several local webinars.
