From the head of department

I would like to encourage all employees and students to support our canteen. We are very lucky to have a great cook like Tran and we would like her to have the best possible basis to continue her business. It is also good for the people at the department to meet each other across different disciplines and functions.

Have a good one,
Geir Anton

News and general information


  Seminar: Physics and radiotherapy

Everybody must have by now heard about the the news that Helse Vest has been given the task of planning a proton therapy center in Bergen. Just before that, our rector, who is also a professor of medical physics, wrote a good article about this in På Høyden: Partikkelfysikk i kamp mot kreft. The establishment of such a center in Bergen will have consequences for our department both within research and education. Therefore we are having this seminar in order to present some of the possibilities.

  • Monday October 28 12:00-13:40
  • Bachelorrommet (359), Department of Physics and Technology, Allégaten 55


12:00 Welcome and lunch

12:20 Dag Rune Olsen: Particle therapy and its advantages
12:40 Dieter Röhrich: Ion therapy - a research field for physicists
13:00 Ludvig Paul Muren: Medical-physical challenges in proton- and particle therapy
13:20 Olav Dahl: Proton- and particle therapy: clinical status and potential


All are welcome to an exciting and highly relevant seminar!

  Workshop: Integrated system analysis

Researchers with interest in integrated system analysis and multi-disciplinary collaboration are welcome to a workshop with International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA):

  • Wednesday November 6, 9:00-16:00
  • University of Bergen, Dragefjellet, aud. 3.

From the program:

Future Energy Challenges and Opportunities
What is the best approach in studying: Human impact on the climate system – changes in the climate system.
Human impact of marine eco systems

For more information and registration, see The research council's web-page.

  Digital evaluation and examination in the spotlight, November 13 and 14

Norgesuniversitetet and UHR's group of experts in digital evaluation and examination would like to invite to a seminar in Bergen in collaboration with the University of Bergen. The seminar will have a practical approach to the theme with focus on good examples, new possibilities, experience sharing and preparation of common challenges. The target group for the seminar is scientific, technical and administrative employees, leaders and others who are interested in the seminar's theme.

The seminar will take place on November 13 and 14 at the Law Faculty, Dragefjellet, Magnus Lagabøtes plass 1. The registration deadline is on October 28. For information about the program, registration and practical info, see the seminar's web-page.  


  Budget for open access publishing at the University of Bergen

At UoB's board meeting on 29.11.2012, it was decided to allocate funds to cover costs associated with Open Access-publications. This is a pilot scheme for 3 years and a total of 1.5 M NOK is allocated for this purpose in 2013. The funds are distributed to the faculties and the University Museum according to assoc. prof. and prof. Positions, as well as deans and department heads.


Employees, PhD candidates and Msc students can apply for funds here.


  Information meeting about erasmus+

SIU will be coming to UoB in order to inform about Erasmus+. The academic units are encouraged to be represented at the meeting at both administrative and scientific levels.


Tuesday, October 22 13:00 - 15.30 in Egget, Student Center.


EU has accepted a budget for the new collaboration program within education, which was given the name Erasmus+. Erasmus+ will in many ways be an extension of "Lifelong Learning Programme - Erasmus", which will be formally ended in the academic year 2013/14.



We are happy to wish a new colleague welcome to the department:


As of 14.10.13, Steffen Mæland is employed as a PhD candidate within experimental high energy particle physics for a period of 4 years.




H-bar is open every Friday 19:00-01:00.

On Tuesdays, every even-numbered week, pub-lectures are held at H-bar. More info on H-bar's facebook page.

H-bar is run by the Scientific Committee at the department and is primarily for students – employees are also welcome!
