Promoting our science to the public

Porelab will be participating to the Researcher’s night on September the 28th, 2018.



PoreLab Junior Forum

The main goal of the PoreLab Junior forum is to bring together the community of PhDs, PostDocs and early career researchers of PoreLab into a single venue, with the objective of allowing them to better know each other personally and share their respective work/scientific interests.

Find more here about the 1st PoreLab Junior Forum that took place at the Physics Department, University of Oslo, in March 8th and 9th, 2017.

The 2nd PoreLab Junior Forum will take place in Trondheim on September the 20th and 21st, 2018.

The PoreLab Journal Club

The PoreLab Journal Club meets every Thursday at 14:00. The purpose of the club is to discuss papers chosen and presented by a PoreLab member. The presented papers are peer-reviewed and recent, and can be chosen from any field. An exception to this rule is to present a very old seminal paper e.g. (Washburn, Onsager, …).

All are welcome and can propose paper to discuss upon by contacting the administrator Mathias Winkler.

Typically, each participant can voice their view relating to several questions such as the appropriateness of the research design, the statistics employed, the appropriateness of the controls that were used, etc. There might be an attempt to synthesize together the results of several papers, even if some of these results might first appear to contradict each other. Even if the results of the study are seen as valid, there might be a discussion of how useful the results are and if these results might lead to new research or to new applications. The series are held simultaneously in Oslo and Trondheim.
