The Norway financial mechanism supported an exchange of student Johanna Robinson in Norway.
Johanna Robinson, a master’s student at Jožef Stefan international postgraduate school, worked three months at Norwegian institute for air research  (NILU). During the three months visit in Norway she gathered knowledge on air pollution in urban areas through actively contributing to CITI-SENSE project. As her main task was to coordinate a deliverable on “Pilot study evaluation and protocol for phase 2”, she successfully explored her coordination skills. During her stay, contacts were kept to other institutions in EU participating in the CITI-SENSE project. She actively improved the communication between work packages in the project, which had long lasting effects. 
Johanna gained more experience on working in international environment and made many new contacts. She was also able to improve her Norwegian skills, and kept studying also after returning home. 
NILU benefitted by having a committed member in their CITI-SENSE team, with a high working capacity, innovative approaches and  multidisciplinary understanding of technical and societal aspects of the project which led to better communication in the project. Also, by bringing insights from the Ljubljana case study, Johanna was able to share experiences and good practices with the other case study locations.
Few months after the finishing of the working period in Norway, NILU invited the Slovenian team from Jožef Stefan institute (JSI) to another similar European project.

Marta Jagodic, študentka doktorskega študija na Mednarodni podiplomski šoli Jožefa Stefana, je preživela 3 mesece izmenjave na raziskovalnem oddelku Univerzitetne bolnišnice Stavanger v sodelovanjem z Arctic University of Norway, Tromso. S projektom je pridobila in izboljšala svoje znanje biostatistike na področju humanega biomonitoringa v povezavi z okolijskim onesnaženjem severnega in južnega pola. S projektom je pridobila znanje uporabe SPSS 20 programa, razširila znanje iskanja literature po znanstvenih bazah. Izpopolnila pa je tudi komunikativne sposobnosti, znanje tujega jezika. S to izkušnjo je razširila svoj krog poznanstev in pridobila samozavest ter izkušnjo življenja povsem na svojem.


Organizacija gostiteljica je z obiskom razširila znanje o Sloveniji in raziskavah, ki jih izvajamo. Organizacija pošiljateljica je pridobila znanje biostatistike in pridobila še boljše povezave v sodelovanju med njima dvema. Pridobili smo nova prijateljstva in možnost nadaljnjega sodelovanja.
Področje dela/učenja in biostatisitičnih analiz je obsegal raziskave in analize na področju humanega biomonitoringaprojektov AMAP (Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme) – kjer je poudarek na iskanju in primerjanju vplivov onesnaženja Zemeljskih polov na zdravje in kakovost življenja ljudi. Poleg tega pa tudi ob iskanju vzporednic severnega in južnega pola – ali onesnaženje južnega pola enako vpliva na ljudi kot onesnaženje severnega.

Ion-doped transition metal dichalcogenide transistors
 
Atomically-thin transistors are the subject of growing interest for microelectronic applications. These materials offer superior electrostatic gate control, low interface state density, strain-relaxed heterojunction formation, and flexibility.  For devices these systems need techniques for large area growth, defect control, ohmic contacts, junction doping, gate dielectric nucleation, low oxide thickness gate stacks, and self-alignment processes.  This talk will summarize recent progress in development of transition metal dichalcogenide transistors in nanotube and flake geometries. An approach for doping these devices using solid polymer dielectrics and ions like lithium and cesium will be shown.
 
Cordially invited!
