Northern Research Forum

The 6th Northern Research Forum (NRF) Open Assembly which was originally planned to be held in Oslo and Kirkenes in the autumn of 2011 has been moved to Iceland. The move of congress venues was prompted by unforeseen financial challenges, according to the NRF Secretariat.

The venue of the 6th Open Assembly is a small town in the south of Iceland located 45 km to the east of Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. The town of Hveragerði is well known for its geothermal park, which is centrally located in the town.

The NRF secretariat says that all preparations are well underway and the Open Assembly will be held on the 4th - 6th of September.
