1st Norwegian Computer Aided Molecular Design (NorCAMD) Community Event

June 9 @ 09:00 - 11:00


What is the NorCAMD Community?

The NorCAMD Community aims to bring together individuals and organizations in Norway which have an interest in accessing and applying modelling and simulation techniques to help solve scientific challenges, especially in the fields of Life Sciences and Materials Sciences.

NorCAMD is born as the initiative of several academic and industrial actors with The Life Science Cluster as the facilitator.


When: 9. June, 09.00 – 11.00

Where: Online. A link to join the webinar will be sent to the participants.
