Waiting for #pint22: latest news from Italy

Did you know that approximately 25% of Oslo people are foreign?
We will travel with you all around the world with a new series of events! Waiting for Pint22 is Pint Of Science's international series of events organised by the Oslo chapter ries of events. This time the focus is on Italy. Meet Italian scientists in Oslo:

Prof. Arnoldo Frigessi , Department of Biostatistics: University of Oslo and Oslo University Hospital
Data science for the covid19 emergency
During the covid19 pandemics, I was part of team of data scientist who every week run models to produce estimates of the reproduction number R, short term predictions of the number of covid patients admitted to hospital and long term scenarios. I will first give you an idea of what these models are, and how uncertainty plays an important role. Then I will discuss how we tried to communicate our results to the public and the media, and finally I will argue that doing science during emergence is building evidence in a very special way.

Prof. Luca Menegon, Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo
Hunting for fossil earthquakes in Norway
Earthquakes are among the most destructive natural events, but much is still unknown about them. Looking closely at rocks may give us important clues on how earthquakes form, on how much energy they release, and at which depth in the Earth’s crust they occur. In this presentation, I will bring you on a journey through spectacular rocks exposed in the stunning scenarios of the Lofoten islands in Norway, which contain evidence of ancient seismic activity. These rocks represent fossil earthquakes that occurred deep in the continental crust some hundreds of millions of years ago.

Ass. Prof. Sabrina Sartori, Department of Technology Systems, University of Oslo
Sustainable energy for everyone, everywhere, with hydrogen storage
Game-changing energy storage: why do we need it? In this talk we will address the key technologies for energy storage, especially focusing on the challenges and opportunities of hydrogen production and storage.



What is Pint of Science?
Pint of Science is an annual science festival that takes place every May and brings researchers to your local bar to tell you about the latest happenings in the world of science. The perfect opportunity for you to meet the men and women shaping the science of tomorrow. Come and have a drink with them!
