Norwegian Oikos Society

Norwegian Oikos Society


The Norwegian Ecological Society (Norsk økologisk forening) is a contact forum for ecologists active in Norway. We aim to strengthen and develop the network of ecologists in Norway and the Nordic countries and promote ecology as a discipline with a Norwegian, Nordic and International perspective.

Membership is open to all ecologists, with a focus on professionals, and, especially, young generation of ecologists, including students. NØF organizes a national conference every second year, and participates actively in the Nordic conferences. We support the national conferences, and especially facilitate that attendance of students.

NØF provides financing for ecologist who would like to organize courses, conferences or other activities relevant for ecologists in Norway. To apply for funding, follow the guidelines in this form, and return to anders.opdal (at)

We also provide stipends for Master students interested in participating at the National or Nordic conferences. The only criteria is to be a member and have an accepted abstract (poster or talk). To apply for a stipend, fill in this form and return to anders.opdal (at) along with a confirmation of the abstract submission.
