DION invites all temporary scientific staff and PhD students at NTNU Gjøvik and their families to celebrate summer solstice together! June 23rd Eiktunet will open the doors for a traditional summerfest. There will be a fire, music, possibly some excursions and other activities, snacks and drinks. Check out more here: https://mjosmuseet.no/kalender/sankthansaften-2021. Optionally we can do a short hike to Bergstoppen – the highest point in the area. Please register here before the deadline. The deadline for registration is until Thursday, 17th June, 13:00. The number of tickets is limited! Earlier registrations will be given priority.
DION is happy to announce a new round of support grants for educational or social activities for our members at NTNU!
All PhD candidates, Postdocs and other temporary scientific employees at any NTNU campuses are eligible to apply for a grant (up to 2500 NOK) to cover expenses related to organizing activities that create opportunities for PhD students and post-docs to network, learn, and enrich their experience. Please note that Master degree students are NOT eligible.
DION will give preference to applications which are targeted towards an open audience. Applications for the exclusive benefit of one department or faculty will still be accepted but applications that are accessible for all DION members will be prioritized. We encourage any outdoor activities where it is easier to follow COVID protocols.
Funding should be used by the end of August, i.e. until 31.08.2021 23:59 CET.
The organizers are expected initially to cover the costs of the event and then seek reimbursement of the costs from DION. No a priori funding is given. Please note that the receipts and all reimbursement documents should be submitted to DION before 31st January 2022, although we encourage you to submit it by 31st December 2021 if it is possible. Reimbursement of the costs is not guaranteed if it comes later than January 31st, 2022.
In case of approval of the grant, the organizers should promote DION by making it a co-host of the Facebook event. A DION board member will be assigned to each approved application, and the organizers will liaise with them about the event.
Please note that the maximum amount DION can reimburse is 2500 (two thousand and five hundred) NOK. If overall cost of the event exceeds 2500 NOK, it is organizer’s sole responsibility to get extra funding from other sources. Any requests for more than 2500 NOK from DION will be automatically declined.
We also highly encourage those interested to apply as a group, although grant applications by individuals remain welcome.
We are back! DION invites all PhDs, Post Docs, and temporary staff at NTNU Gjøvik and their family members for an outdoor gathering next Wednesday afternoon (since the last one was canceled due to corona restrictions). There will be a cozy bonfire, together with light snacks and good company.
If you are planning to come, please let us know by registering here.
See you soon!
