InterPore Norway focuses on interdisciplinary fundamental and applied studies of porous media in connection with national and international technological demands.

Open discussion Session: A short open discussion session was organized on the topic “Challenges and opportunities to promote better integration between academia, industry and research institutes”. The idea was to identify in this session some of the potential issues that hinder a better integration between the different parts and perhaps find pathways for solutions. This session was intended to be an open conversation with the whole audience.
The dinner was organized at the EGON Restaurant Karl Johan at the main street of Oslo (Karl Johans gate 37, close to Nationaltheateret metro station).
Marcel Moura, member of the organizing committee wrote the following about the event: “The 6th meeting of the Norwegian Chapter of InterPore was held in Oslo on November 9th 2023. The meeting was organized by Marcel Moura and Janne Hoff and was hosted by PoreLab and the University of Oslo at the Oslo Science Park conference center. About 45 participants attended the workshop with a good balance between university, industry and research institutes. The workshop counted 10 presentations by invited speakers, of which 6 were from universities and 4 from industry / research institutes. An open discussion session was organized on the topic of “Challenges and opportunities to promote better integration between academia, industry and research institutes”. We believe the discussion was very fruitful and it helped the community to understand some of the typical bottlenecks that may hinder better integration between the parts.
A business meeting of the Norwegian Chapter of InterPore was included as part of the program and it gave the community the opportunity to better understand the current and planned future actions of InterPore Norway.”
