Successful first SAMCoT Arctic HSE Workshop!

Ida Munkeby - NTNU Director of Organization, welcomed the participants underlying the great work done by SAMCoT in disseminating its unique knowledge on a topic of such importance as HSE and in an area as vulnerable and extreme as it is the Arctic. The SAMCoT event on Arctic HSE and the topic in itself is in line with NTNU vision, "Knowledge for a better world" and a key element of all lab and field activities linked to the different research areas within SAMCoT. Her welcome speech is available here.
