Welcome to BioCat

The National graduate school in biocatalysis, BioCat, is established to provide expertise and tools for research and education within biocatalysis in Norway.

Upcoming BioCat events:

The Norwegian Research School of Global Health (NRSGH), together with National research school in population based epidemiology (EPINOR) and the National graduate school in biocatalysis (BioCat), is organizing one day supervisor seminar 17 October in Tromsø.

The seminar will cover several topics related to supervision of PhD students, such as aligning expectations, supporting autonomy, working across cultures, and balancing the personal and professional aspects of supervision. See the attached program for more information.

The seminar is held and moderated by the renowned researcher in PhD supervision, Sofie Kobayashi from Copenhagen University.

This seminar is an excellent opportunity to refresh and improve your knowledge of PhD supervision. It is also a chance to meet and discuss supervision with other local supervisors from related research fields in Tromsø.

The course and lunch are free of charge, fully funded by the research schools. BioCat pays travel, eventually accommodation, for PhD and Postdocs. It will be held in Linken meeting centre in Breivika close to UiT’s campus in Tromsø.
