The NDGF all hands meeting is planned for 24-25 May at USIT, UiO, Oslo, Norway. The target audience is NT1 staff and site admins from all the participating sites in the Nordic Tier-1 site.

Practical Information

Getting to USIT

USIT is located in Kristen Nygaards hus near Blindern campus of the University of Oslo. The closest public transportation station is Forskningsparken, served by T-bane lines 4 and 5, and tram lines 17 and 18. ruter.no webpage will provide the information on how to reach Forskningsparken from where you stay in Oslo. See also the information on tickets.

From Scandic Edderkoppen (the place to stay for most of you) you can take either trams 17 or 18 from Holbergs plass or T-bane 4 or 5 from Nationaltheatret.

Kristen Nygaards hus is located behind the big black building, which is immediately visible from Forskningsparken station. The meeting will happen in the room 3212, on the third floor. Ring Dmytro Karpenko on +47-9577-6417 if you have problems finding your way to or inside the building.


Lunches and coffee will be served right to the meeting room. The dinner will take place at Tekehtopa cafe, which is just across the street from Scandic Edderkoppen.
