Steering Committee meeting 12 June

The Steering Committee had a meeting in Bergen. Among the many cases that were discussed was the mid ways evalution report from the National Research Council. The Steering Committee is happy about the results from the report and is excited to become an even better research school in the next four years!

It was decided that EPINOR will not accept new PhD students who are already member of another research school. Those of you who are members and have double memberships are asked to report this to epinor@uit.no. 

Congratulations on defending your thesis
