Successful UiO Hive kick off meeting
The UiO Hive team helt 18 of September a kick off meeting (Workshop) for the UiO eInfrastructure hub Hive at Åpen Sonen, IFI. The goal for UiO Hive is to establish a hub around which participants can collaborate on this interdisciplinary project, where students can find fruitful projects topics and support to realize projects bridging across disciplines.
The Hive Workshop took place 18.9.2018 at UiO. A total of 20 participants used the opportunity to learn more about this eInfrastructure initiative to establish a hub at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Oslo for projects integrating technological development.

Successful first Hive meeting
The kick-off meeting (workshop) on the 18 of September showed up to be inclusive, about 20 people from first year students to professors participated to 8 presentations on a variety of topics, from geophysics problem, machine learning algorithm, to wireless communication of small devices. Following the presentation, participants learned how to build a mini weather station based on open source technology.
This kick-off meeting was a great time to learn from people working in other disciplines and begin the discussion about collaboration over an in house UiO solution for Internet of Things (IoT) specifically designed for research in harsh and remote environment.
An interactive platform has been launched for the UiO - Hive (eInfrastructure), with:
- available tutorials on some of the technology we are using.
- a set of specific challenges will be published for a competition on our collaborative platform.
