The meeting is an oppportunity to discuss current opportunities for joint research activities between NORSI students, graduates and faculty members. The aim is to discover which collaborations are possible right now, and lay the foundations for NORSI research projects, hopefully involving researchers at different career stages. The meeting will include short presentations from experienced NORSI members on their current research agenda, sketching out which competences and interests would be most suitable for fruitful collaboration, and a brief overview of some active parts of the research frontier particularly receptive to the pluralist style of research fostered by NORSI. Finally, contacts materials between all interested parties will be shared, allowing researchers to keep in touch after the conference and further develop joint research ideas.
