Digital Frukost: Multidisciplinarity in environmental sciences: how to link data and information

The environmental sciences rely on data from many different fields and information sources. These have to be combined and integrated to extract knowledge about how the environment is changing and the underlying causes. We are happy to have Elisa Ravagnan, senior scientist at NORCE, here to present and discuss how this can be done.

In recent years, the need to use the knowledge coming from different disciplines to understand problems and suggest solutions has exponentially increased, especially in environmental sciences. But what is multidisciplinarity? How to link information coming from different backgrounds? How to use multidisciplinary data that differ in structure, precision and reliability to understand an environmental challenge?

Examples from projects and initiatives in NORCE will be presented.

About the seminars

"Digital Frukost" is an open breakfast seminar series focusing on research activities at the interface between the biological sciences and that of mathematics, computer science, physics, engineering or social sciences. Examples of such research activities could be mathematical or computational modeling of biological systems, application of engineering/control systems theory on biological systems or inspired by biological systems, application of mathematics/statistics/machine learning to analyze big data in health or marine sector; from sensor systems, imaging, omics technologies, policy making based on scientific models etc.
The seminar will be at the Computational Biology Unit, Department of Informatics, UiB, 5. floor (Datablokken), Thormøhlens gate 55.
We hope to see many of you there!
