More than a hundred persons were gathered for the NORCOWE 2016 conference - two days of examining and discussing the research brought about by NORCOWE in its 8 years of existence. Below you will find most of the presentations.


We would like to thank all the speakers and persons present and hope to see many of you at our forthcoming conference on the 8th of November - Science Meets Industry Bergen. Welcome!
