Invitation to Attend Peder Sather Center 10 Year Anniversary Seminar

Time: 26 October, 18.00 – 21.00 (Norway time)
Place: Digital / UC Berkeley

The seminar program may be found here

Link to the digital version.

In 2012 eight Norwegian institutions joined forces and collaborated with UC Berkeley in establishing the Peder Sather Center for Advanced Studies. The primary mission of the center is to strengthen ongoing research collaborations and foster the development of new research collaborations between faculty at UC Berkeley and the participating Norwegian institutions.

Each year a Peder Sather Grant is awarded to promising collaborative projects between faculty at UC Berkeley and Norway – across all disciplines. The celebrations will consist of a series of presentations from researchers at the Center, followed by a joint lunch and dinner for our guests in Berkeley. This is a great opportunity to learn more about how to use the Peder Sather grants and get to know some of the researchers from UC Berkeley from various disciplines.
