You will find as well information about our PoreLab Junior Forum, a forum which goal is to bring together the PhD candidates, the PostDocs and the researcher of the PoreLab center. We aim through these events to give plenty of opportunities to all for collaboration and engagement with our center.
The Research Council of Norway pays special attention to dissemination, and not only to the strictly scientific world but as well to a larger audience. Popularization of scientific results and promoting our science especially to the youths are particularly important for our center. Under this page you will find information about our activities towards this topic.
Conferences, Workshop, Seminars, Symposium
You find here a list of the major live events PoreLab has been organizing since its beginning. We have in addition the great privilege at PoreLab to host a number of invited delegations. A series of workshops were organized in parallel to these visits.
Promoting our science to the public
An important goal of PoreLab is to communicate its research and findings, as well as to increase the appreciation and understanding of science in general. Our aim is to reach both Norwegian and international audiences.
The members of PoreLab are accessible to media, and are encouraged to contribute their comments on issues to public concern whenever their expertise is applicable.
You find here a few examples for outreach.

PoreLab Lecture Series
The PoreLab lecture series are organized alternating with the Porous Media Tea Time Talks (#PorousMediaTTT) on Wednesdays from 13:00 to 14:00. The series are held simultaneously in Oslo (UiO) and Trondheim (NTNU). The PoreLab lecture series are now almost always given by external lecturers.
The Thursday talks, new format after the PoreLab Journal Club
The Thursday’s talks aim to promote internal speakers who are given the possibility to present their own activities or give a lecture. It is our goal that each PoreLab member should participate with at least one presentation during the course of the year. The Thursday’s talks take place once every two weeks.
The series are held simultaneously in Oslo and Trondheim.
All are welcome and can propose talks by contacting the administrator Santanu Sinha

Guest Researchers at PoreLab
The COVID-19 outbreak and following restrictions on travels led to a drastic drop in the number of visitors both in 2020 and 2021. We had 64 visitors in 2019, 14 in 2020 and only 7 in 2021. As the pandemic’s effects further reduce and restrictions are gradually lifted, it was a great pleasure to welcome again our guests at PoreLab. The number bounced back in 2022 with 46 guests visiting both PoreLab NTNU and PoreLab UiO
