The NORD University of Bodø (Norway) will host a scientific Webinar, open to the general public, on April 15th to remember the 95th anniversary of the expedition of airship NORGE.

The event will be chaired by Prof. Steinar Aas, Associate Professor of Contemporary History, and will see the participation of Norwegian and Italian scholars and institutional representatives.

The Webinar takes place almost exactly 95 years after the stop-over of airship NORGE in Ekeberg (Oslo), on its way to the Amundsen-Ellsworth-Nobile transpolar expedition.

The initiative has GREAL as official scientific partner and is developed within the “95 YEARS AGO: THE NORGE” international commemoration initative.
