Starting Grant to:

Assosiate Professor Jason Hearst, Department of Energy and Process Engineering.

Hearst will research on how CO2 absorption in the ocean is affected by turbulence in both the atmosphere and ocean.


Starting Grant to:

Researcher Marius Korsnes, Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture.

Through the project «Midway: Probing Sufficiency through Meat and Milk in China», Korsnes will explore what the term attractiveness can give and mean in realtion to food production and consumption.
