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:

A one day supervisor seminar (on the 17th of October) will be held and moderated by the renowned researcher in PhD supervision, Sofie Kobayashi from Copenhagen University.

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. The 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.
