The Nordic meeting 2020 is postponed to 2021

In light of the current situation with the Covid-19 pandemic, the NFCF organizing committee have decided to postpone The Nordic Meeting to 2021.

Our meeting will have participants and speakers from many nations that may not be able to attend in 2020. It is also uncertain which national restrictions will be imposed at the time; closed borders and limitations on social gatherings, are likely.

New dates for the Nordic Meeting 2021:

The Nordic Meeting 2021 will be held on Thursday to Friday, August the 26th and 27th.

The basic flow cytometry course will be held on Wednesday the 25th of August.

Place; Oslo, X meeting point ( / Moxy Hotel (same as planned for the meeting in 2020).
