The Geological Socety of Norway cordially invites you to join the most important forum for the Geosciences in Norway, January 7-9, 2019 at Scandic Bergen City
Two plenary presentations are ready: Prof. Daniel Beat Müller; Resource and information needs for achieving the sustainable development goals and Prof. Fernanco Corfu; New perspectives on the Caledonides of Scandinavia
Daniel Beat Müller is professor at the Dep. of Energy and Processing Engineering at NTNU where he is chairing the program for Industrial Ecology.
Daniel received a M.Sc. in rural engineering and a Ph.D. in technical sciences from ETH Zürich. Prior to his appointment at NTNU, he was a post-doc at
TU Delft and an associate research scientist at Yale University. He was a visiting professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in Beijing and a
guest researcher at EMPA in St. Gallen. He was a lead author of the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC),
WG III (Mitigation). He served as a Council member of the International Society for Industrial Ecology (ISIE), and co-founded the ISIE section “Socio-Economic
Metabolism”. He was a member of the steering committee of the Swiss National Research Programme 65 “New Urban Quality”. He is a member of the
Operational Group of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Raw Materials.
Fernando Corfu is Professor at the Dep. for Geology and Geophysiscs, University of Oslo.
Fernando received his PhD from ETH-Zürich in 1980 and went on to a post. doc. position and later a research associate position at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.
Here, he worked alongside the late Tom Krogh, and developed techniques and applications that elevated U-Pb zircon geochronology to a key analytical technique
in modern geology. Fernando has been a professor at UiO since 1999, and has worked on topics ranging from the evolution of orogens, through zirconology to the regional
geological evolution of the Scandinavian Caledonides and the Baltic Shield. His contributions have not only added significant new knowledge in these fields, but also
challenged long-held tenets and thus raising awareness of yet unresolved issues.
Registration will open in october.
