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.

We support the organization of pre-conference activities such as thematic workshops and courses, and specific thematic activities proposed by NØF members.
