Mas talking to woman in front of a poster at a conferenceThe highlights of the UTFORSK project will be presented in joint seminars. Two events are scheduled to take place; 2015 in Sao Paulo, Brazil and 2016 in Trondheim, Norway.

Students and postdocs will present their results to the partner groups, and international lecturers will be invited to present their most recent work and will be encouraged to provide critical insights on the projects carried out by the UTFORSK partners. Professors Wisløff and Brum have a rich international network with world-leading scientists, and such network will be explored to provide students with the opportunity to discuss their research with the best scientists in the field. Students (Master’s and PhD) from the partner institutions are eligible to apply for a travel grant to cover airfare and accommodation. Please contact Jose Bianco Moreira for details. You can find contact information on the right side of this page.

Differently from most conferences, the focus of our seminars will be the young investigators. Poster sessions will take place, where master’s and PhD students will present their work and discuss with the audience. PhD students scheduled to defend their theses in the near future will be invited to present in oral sessions, to serve as training for the public defense. Time for questions will be allowed.
