Welcome back everyone! Summer is almost over, and we are off to a start of a strange and exciting new semester. By now most of us are used to doing things virtually (even if we are super tired of it), and just to make sure everyone is safe (considering the recent upsurge in cases), we will be conducting this semester’s kickoff virtually.
We will start off with some friendly digital catch-up, and proceed to a competitive but still sorta’ friendly Kahoot competition, followed by Pictionary. Winners of both the games will be awarded gift cards. This event is open to PhDs, Postdocs, and temporary scientific staff at NTNU across all the three campuses! (Newly employed candidates are encouraged to join, since this is a good opportunity to build a friendly network and have a chat with their fellow employees).
When? 28th of August, 6 p.m, Norway time.
Where? Online, on Zoom platform. The link for the event is here.
Looking forward to catching up with all of you!
Date: 21st January 2020
Time: 5pm – 7pm
Venue: R3, Realfagbygget, Gløshaugen, Trondheim
Do you feel your life is a little bit sadder and gloomier without music? Do you have a song in your heart that you cannot sing alone?
You don’t need to be a trained singer to join our choir: we look for committed people with a good intonation, in order to build a vibrant, cozy environment for beautiful harmonies to bloom.
And you, holed up instrumentalists! Do you play piano, guitar or percussions and you want to help us? We are looking for musicians, so join our open rehearsals!
If you want to participate, please fill in this form.
Stay tuneful 😀
PS. The location might be changed. Keep on checking our posts on the facebook event for possible modifications!

Have you ever thought you would make for a good Improv artist? Or you wanted to join in for the sheer fun of it? Well, here is the good news: DION is inviting Trondheim’s most active and popular Improv group, Gibberish, for a workshop just for the PhDs, Postdocs, and other scientific employees.
(Improv, or improvisational theatre, is an art form where most or all of the performance is created spontaneously, without any prepared scripts or plan)
So buckle up, and join us for a fun evening! The event is free, and there will be pizza too! Seriously, there’s no reason for missing out on this!
Reserve a spot on our Facebook event
Hope to see you there!
