Øyvind Foss, former pro-rector at the Stavanger University College (the precursor to UiS), recently posted the debate article "Morten Tønnessen bør velges til UiS styret" [Morten Tønnessen should be elected to the UiS board] at the University of Stavanger´s debate pages. I really appreciate his endorsement.
A couple of days ago I posted "Vi må ha ambisjoner for forskningen!" [We need ambitions for research!] on the University of Stavanger debate pages, in reply to a post by Svein Tuastad, "59 poeng" [59 [publication] points]. Yesterday he replied, with the post "Kulturforklaringa" [the culture explanation].
