posted in: Uncategorized | 0

As part of the Science Festival in Moscow 6-8 of October 2017, a delegation from UiT and NTNU visited Moscow and participated with talks and opening of the polar night exhibition. All posters had been translated into Russian, and the exhibition was part of the official programme for the 2017 Science Festival in Moscow. Geir Johnsen, Malin Daase and Jørgen Berge also participated with scientific talks during a Norwegian-Russian seminar at the Lomonosov Moscow Starte University, as well as during the main festival. Kenneth Ruud (vice-rector at UiT) opened the festival and exhibition. The polar night exhibition has now been produced in three languages, and have been shown in Norway, Canada, USA and Russia.
