Young Researchers Night – Bergen

The Young Academy of Norway (AYF) and UiBdoc welcomes you to Young Researchers Night in Bergen. Young Researchers Night is networking event for young researchers and is a part of “Forskningsdagene”. The topic of this years “Forskningsdagene” is Peace and Conflict, and the event this year will focus on conflicts in science and how to navigate conflicts both within and outside academia. There will be talks by excellent young researchers and a documentary director will give his insights on how to present controversial topics. Finally, the event will end up in a concert by Dumpster Divas from Voss! Because of covid-19 the mingling part / networking part of the event will be a bit different this year, and we will focus mainly on serving you some interesting talks and entertainment.

The main target group is researchers (including PhD students) from 23 to 45 years, but open to everyone, and we welcome students with an interest in science to come join us. The event is free and will be held at NORCE – Nygårdsporten (Nygårdsgaten 112) in the city centre (close to many of the university buildings at UiB). There will be a bar – and free food for the first who arrives (given that covid-19 regulation allows it). There will only be room for 50 people, so attendants must book a free ticket by using the registration form above.
