NFR has recently granted money for a new research school CHESS, and an adjunct professor position at the Department of Geosciences, UiO. The grant is meant to strengthen the collaboration between the earth science communities at the universities of Oslo and Bergen and to place the Norwegian studies in paleoclimate at the forefront of international research. CEED researchers will be important collaborators in the work.
