8th Norwegian Environmental Toxicology Symposium (NETS2020)

NETS2020 cancelled/postponed 

Due to the escalation in the pandemic coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the NETS2020 meeting scheduled for April 22-24 will be cancelled. However, we aim to find alternative dates for organizing the NETS symposium the coming fall. New dates for the NETS2020 meeting will be announced in these webpages in due time.

The abstract deadline is of course also cancelled, and a new deadline will be announced when things are normalized and plans are ready. Paid registration fees will be reimbursed. 

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

On behalf of the local organizing committee,
Odd André Karlsen

The 8th Norwegian Environmental Toxicology Symposium
Ocean Health in the Anthropocene 

April 22-24 2020

Welcome to Bergen and the 8th Norwegian Environmental Toxicology Symposium (NETS2020). The local organizing committee is delighted to host this meeting, which will take place from April 23rd-24th, 2020. We will also organise a pre-event for students (master- and PhD students) April 22nd.

The biannual NETS series is one of the primary arenas where the Norwegian scientific communities within eco- and environmental toxicology gather and discuss environmental challenges. The overarching topic for NETS 2020 is the health of our oceans, which is of high societal concern and strongly linked to the Sustainable Development Goals adopted recently by the United Nations. Together with the Norwegian Society of Pharmacology and Toxicology (NSFT), NETS2020 will this year be organised as the NSFT spring meeting.

Importantly, NETS is also an interdisciplinary symposium and should encompass all relevant activities within the Norwegian community of eco- and environmental toxicologists. We should therefore point out, that we also welcome those of you that do not focus your research on marine pollution.

We look forward to see you in Bergen!


Best regards,

The local organizing committee
