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.

Our General Assembly will take place at the NSO 2022 meeting in Aarhus, Wednesday January 19, at 08:00.
