From the head of department

The leadership of the University of Bergen has decided to allocate 12,5% of the approved amount from the Norwegian Research Council to its three new SFFs. This means a total of 20 mill kr for Birkelands Centre which has decided to use 2 mill kr of these funds as extra support for the current reconstruction work at our department. It is very pleasing and means that the department’s budget for the reconstruction will be equally reduced. A big thank you and respect to UoB’s leadership for supporting the SFFs in such a way – and to Birkelands Centre’s leadership for contributing to IFT’s common good in such a way!

Have a great weekend,

Geir Anton
