Have a nice summer!

sommer4This is the last issue of K2News before the summer holiday. It is therefore natural to give a short summary of the first 6 months of 2016. It has been a year of ups and downs.  By far the biggest downturn was Helga Salvesen’s death in January. Helga was a number one in many ways, and her passing touched us all. Taking care of each other in everyday life is the best way to honor her.

There have been many ups this season. What is most important, depends on who you ask. Stian Knappskog might answer that he got “Søren Falchs pris” for young researchers. Torbjorn Jonung might say that he received the teaching award, while Eystein Husebye might say that  the EU project, of which he is the coordinator, is on track. Siv might say that the K2 budget is in balance.  For my own part, I would argue that we have put in place a new strategy plan for the department with clear goals and measures. This we will come back to this over the summer.

Anyway, summer is coming up and it is important to recharge our batteries and realize that life is more than work and K2.

Have a nice summer!
