Second Get Support from Research Infrastructures
Following the success of the first 'Get Support From Research Infrastructures' webinar, organised by EATRIS and NCMM, a second webinar was held in conjunction with the University of Tromsø
The event was organised in Tromsø by the University of Tromsø (UiT)s PYRO (Postdoctoral and Young Researcher Organization) and NCMM (Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway). The webinar took place on Thursday 23 September and saw researchers from university and hospital environments in Tromsø gather online to learn more about the different research infrastructures available to help support their research projects.
NCMM researchers featured
The webinar co-organiser, NCMM-based EATRIS coordinator, Anita Kavlie, presented EATRIS and its offerings to the research community, with Johannes Landskron, Head of the Chemical Biology Platform at NCMM, presenting the platform and the services that he and his team can offer researchers. NCMM's Director, Professor Janna Saarela ended the webinar with a summary of the event, highlighting the importance of infrastructures to research projects.
