From head of department
Department’s SFU application entitled Centre of Interaction-based Physics and Technology Education has now been sent to NOKUT. Special thanks to Bjørn Tore Hjertaker, who had lead the work in an outsranding manner, as well as to the rest of the team: Kjartan Olafsson, Stein-Dankert Kolstø, Kjellmar Oksavik, Anna Lipniacka, Pawel Kosinski, Hulda Fadnes (master student) and Rune Stadsnes (external/IFT-alumni). The applications will be evaluated by an international committee in "early autumn". The best will then be forwarded to the final round, which also includes the visit to the institutions in question. It is expected that NOKUT will award the three new SFU's some time in November this year.
Enjoy the rest of the week,

Thorium Energy Conference
The fourth international Thorium Conference, ThEC13, will be arranged at CERN in Genève from October 27 – 31, in cooperation with iThEO – International Thorium Energy Organisation. Thorium energy has been a hot topic in Norway for many years – with our own professor emeritus Egil Lillestøl as an important spokesperson.
