Njord Seminar Series spring '22
10. jan. 2022
We are delighted to cordially invite you to Njord Seminar Series for the spring semester of 2022.
CO2Basalt: Flow and mineral sequestration of carbon dioxide in basalts offshore Norway
20. des. 2021
A new Njord project CO2Basalt: Flow and mineral sequestration of carbon dioxide in basalts offshore Norway is set to receive two PhD positions and one Postdoc position starting in 2022. For industries that cannot avoid the production of carbon dioxide as a by-product, capture and geological storage of carbon dioxide is necessary for reaching net zero emissions. The project CO2Basalt will research the geological and physical conditions for mineral trapping and permanent storage of carbon dioxide within basalts of the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Three PhD-candidates starting at Njord as part of the CompSci-project
9. des. 2021
We are excited to announce that three of the new CompSci-positions have been filled by Anthony Val Camposano, Fahimeh Najafi, and Harish Pruthviraj Jain. The three candidates started in October and will be working with Njord during their PhD.
M4: Mixing in Multiphase Flow through Microporous Media
1. des. 2021
Njord is proud to announce that a new PoreLab/Njord project has been funded by the NFR Researcher Project for Young Talents! The project is called M4 and is a collaboration between PoreLab and the Njord Centre at the University of Oslo, and SINTEF Digital, Mathematics and Cybernetics. The project will study the mixing in multiphase flow through microporous media.
