The first HMS (health, environment, safety) meeting at IGS was launched this month with a good turn-out. Issues discussed ranged from insurance on field work, travels to areas of turmoil, security when working late in our offices, as well as heavy workload. The administration will follow up on these issues in the time to come.
Bergens forskningsstiftelse (BFS) was invited to meet with a group of our IGS researchers recently, as a starting point for mutual information. The meeting was succesful, and further contact will be followed up by deputy head Trond and me. It seems that BFS will have more interest in our research fields in the time to come, and we will make sure they are kept informed.
Lastly, the annual Christmas party was held last week with top entertainment (Trond and Siri in a duet we will hear from again, I am sure), quiz, favorite DJ Kjell Rune and lots of glamorous people. Thanks to the party committee!
