FROM THE HEAD OF DEPARTMENT
The big news this week is that the Research Council has announced who goes through to the final round in the process of selecting new SSFs. This is good news for some, but bad news for others since only 29 out of 139 proposals are included in the final. And we would also show our great appreciation to everyone at IFT that took initiative or was involved with proposals that was not used. Even though there might be disappointment, we would like you to know that it was not wasted efforts. We also congratulate the Space Physics Group with a place in the final with Birkeland Center for Space Science, see also coverage in På høyden. Exellent! Likewise, we congratulate CMR with a place in the final with Norwegian Centre for Energy-related Safety and Security, where IFT plays a central role.
Otherwise it was a pleasure to attend the 7-mountain Renewable Energy Conference on Monday and Tuesday in which over 400 participants were gathered. Many of the presentations can be downloaded from the links in the conference program. Egil Lillestøl and Hans Blix did an excellent job in presenting the possibilities of nuclear power.
Have a great weekend,
