The National IOR Centre of Norway was hosting the 3rd National Workshop on Porous Media 16 October 2019. 

The event took place in Oljemuseet, Stavanger. Around 40 participants got the latest update on recent technological advances in porous media research, microfluidics, thermo/fluid dynamics, and rheology – theory, modelling, and experiments.

Interpore Norway is providing a platform for the Norwegian porous media researchers/scientists to come together and exchange ideas. For this reason, Interpore Norway arranges an annual workshop for all that are interested in porous media research and technology.

What is Interpore?

Porous media are encountered in many natural and industrial systems, such as soils, aquifers, oil and gas reservoirs, biological tissues and plants, but also fuel cells, concrete, textiles, polymer composites, and in-tissue drug delivery, to name a few. Many of these porous systems are extremely complex.

Interpore acts as a platform for researchers active in modelling flow and transport in porous media. Flow and transports of fluids also coupled with temperature, deformation, and chemical/biological processes.

Understanding porous media systems

The International Society for Porous Media (Interpore) is a non-profit-making independent scientific organization established in 2008. It aims to advance and disseminate knowledge for the understanding, description, and modeling of natural and industrial porous media systems. The Norwegian Chapter of Interpore, Interpore Norway, was established in 2016.
