Open meetings with all the Centre’s researchers are held weekly and, in addition, there are ample opportunities for scholarly engagement within the Centre through seminars and research workshops.

PoreLab Lecture series

The PoreLab Lecture series are held every wednesday from 09:00 to 10:00 in D3-160 in Realfagbygget. Everyone are welcome to join and contribute, remember to subscribe to receive e-mails about these seminars. Subscription: Send an e-mail to Magnus Aashammer Gjennestad at NTNU or Guillaume Dumazer at UiO. The series are held simultaneously in Oslo and Trondheim.

The PoreLab Journal Club

The PoreLab Journal Club is a club where we meet every Tuesday at 14:00 to discuss papers within the topic of porous media, chosen and presented by one of its members. All are welcome, and feel free to propose paper to discuss 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.
