Njord and COVID-19

As the Corona-virus (COVID-19) hit Norway and the pandemic started spreading at a alarming speed, all the University of Oslo was as of March 12th 6PM closed down for all students and staff.

All Njord activites, trips and events have been cancelled or postponed until further notice following the guidelines from the University and the Norwegian goverment. All of Njord's staff is working from home, and we are restructuring our work for a new type of work situation. Many of us are able to get some of our work done from home, but we hope this does not become a permanent situation.

To compensate for the lack of socializing with collagues, there has already been established digital meeting arenas like the daily morning coffee meeting by webcam and group chats. With this we aim to keep the academic discussions alive, but also, even more important, to care for each other in this isolating situation.
