Conference to promote Norway Funds and panel discussion on open access

Tuesday, 15 June 2021

Is it true that in the early history of the Earth, over 3.6 billion years ago, Antarctica, Greenland and Labrador formed a part of a single supercontinent? This theory is investigated by Prof. Monika Kusiak from the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences, author of the project “Poles together – missing links between Arctic and Antarctic early Earth records” funded under the GRIEG call. Prof. Kusiak’s project will be presented at the conference promoting the Basic Research Programme on 17 June 2021.

In the first part of the conference starting at 10 a.m., the following projects will also be presented:

  • “Polish and Norwegian language and world knowledge development in mono- and multilingual children” by Dr hab. Ewa Maria Haman from the University of Warsaw and
  • “Investigation into the mechanism of regulation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors” by Dr Ákos Nemecz from the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń.

The second part (between 12.30 p.m. and 2 p.m.) will include an expert panel discussion on open access with the participation of representatives of Polish and foreign research community. The full list of speakers is available at https://ncn.wydarzeniaonline.pl/speakers/. Moreover, a Q&A session will be held. You can register to the conference here.
