The NFU is involved in a variety of events. The Annual NFU Conference is, however, the signature event of NFU and one of the main benefits offered to our members.

Research community involvement

Throughout the years, numerous of members of the Norwegian research community have been involved with shaping and filling the NFU annual conference - making this event a vital forum for researchers from various institutions across the country.

The process

The broad theme of the annual Conference is decided by The General Assembly, usually held during the Annual Conference. Next, a Norwegian research institution or University proposes a more specific topic and hosts the Conference.


The NFU Annual Conferences are funded by the Norwegian Research Council and The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
