COST is a European networking organization where most European countries (including Norway and all EU countries) are members. An important task for COST is to promote European research cooperation by initiating scientific networks (COST Actions). More information about COST can be found on their website http://www.cost.eu/ .
In May 2022, it was decided to initiate 70 new COST networks. Networks within or relevant to medical and health research are listed in the table.
UiB wants to make sure that the Welcome Week, 15. – 20. August is good experience, both for the arriving students and the other inhabitants of Bergen. In this regard, we are looking for volunteer colleagues to enlist as “Welcome Week Watch”.
As a Welcome Week Watch you are patrolling the city center together with three other colleges in shift lasting form approximately 22.00 until 03.00. Your job is to observe and make sure that everyone is safe. The volunteers will wear high-visibility vests.
As a watch, you also distribute food and water to those who need it, and make sure that people get home safely. This includes accompanying students that need it, to their home, bus, or taxi.
The job of the watch is to be a support for the student, and you are not supposed to replace other public services. The watch service will be organized with a call central, that the volunteers or the students can call if they need assistance or advise.
We encourage all our colleagues to contribute as a Welcome Week Watch. You get to know colleagues, and the service is important both for the students, Bergen and UiB as a whole.
If you want to contribute, sign up here (Norwegian only)
It is the student service organization Sammen that organizes and coordinates the Welcome Week Watch. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
