Interpore Norway


Interpore NorwayThe International Society for Porous Media (InterPore) is a non-profit-making independent scientific organization established in 2008. It aims to advance and disseminate knowledge for the understanding, description, and modeling of natural and industrial porous media systems. The Norwegian Chapter of Interpore, Interpore Norway, was established in 2016 at a kick-off meeting in Bergen.

Porous media are encountered in many natural and industrial systems, such as soils, aquifers, oil and gas reservoirs, biological tissues and plants, but also fuel cells, concrete, textiles, polymer composites, and in-tissue drug delivery, to name a few. Many of these porous systems are extremely complex.

InterPore acts as a platform for researchers active in modelling flow and transport in porous media. Flow and transports of fluids also coupled with temperature, deformation, and chemical/biological processes.

Interpore Norway is providing a platform for the Norwegian porous media researchers/scientists to come together and exchange ideas. For this reason, Interpore Norway arranges an annual Workshop for all that are interested in porous media research and technology.





The 3rd National Workshop on Porous Media  is scheduled to take place in Stavanger, on October 16, 2019. Online registartion to Deadline: September 20, 2019. Find the program here.

The 2nd National Workshop on Porous Media is scheduled to take place in Oslo, on November 9, 2018. Registration can be done via the link The deadline for registration is October 15, 2018.

The first annual WS was successfully held the 18th of October 2017 in Trondheim at "NINA-huset as a collaboration between NTNU, NGI and Porelab.

Porelab has launched webpages:

The annual WS in 2017 will be held on the 18th of October in Trondheim. 

The registration is now closed. If you still would like to join, please send an e-mail to Gustav Grimstad and you will be informed if there still are some available places .
