Digital Frukost: System Dynamics - A method for research and policy implementation

We are happy to announce that prof. Erling Moxnes from the System Dynamics group at the Department of Geography will give a lecture this time.

The System Dynamics method is a practical and intuitive version of decoupled first order differential equations. As such it is a method to study change, which most people find very interesting. It is problem oriented and hence interdisciplinary. It is closely linked to the fields of management and political science. It makes use of advanced statistical analysis and optimization, and, it could be branch of cognitive psychology.

The seminar will be at Høyteknologisenteret, Computational Biology Unit, Department of Informatics, Datablokken, 5. floor.

"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 or engineering. 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 or omics technologies etc. The seminars are arranged by the Centre for Digital Life Norway (DLN:

We hope to see many of you there!
