Inauguration of the Norwegian NMR Platform

The Norwegian NMR platform (NNP) was officially launched on the 16th of June 2016 in Bergen. The event was chaired by Manager Jarl Underhaug at Vilvite. Vice-Rector Anne Lise Fimreite and Vice-dean Eyvind Rødahl from the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry gave some introduction words as well. Additionally, several  national and international speakers participated on the event: Professor Angela Gronenborn, from the University of Pittsburgh; Professor Stefano Ciurli, from the University of Bologna; Reiner Kümmerle, President of Bruker BioSpin; Professor Bjørn Pedersen from University of Oslo; and Professor Finn Aachmann from NTNU Trondheim. They covered several aspects showing the great capabilities that NNP will offer to both modern research and industry.

After the round of exciting presentations, the audience visited the NNP-building that houses the Bruker Ascend HDIII 850MHz-spectrometer. After the ribbon-cutting, the audience celebrated the starting of the NNP by tasting specially designed cakes for the occasion and drinking sparkling wine.
