Our final annual meeting will take place in Bergen on November 2nd. More information will follow after the summer holidays. The annual meeting is held back-to-back with the NOFE conference on November 3rd-4th, also in Bergen. The membership and conference fee are free for EPINOR members. Go to NOFE’s webpage for more information about registration and abstract submission.

The EPINOR winter school will be combined with a seminar called The Future of Epidemiology.

EPINOR Winter School 2021 - The Future of Epidemiology

November 29th – December 3rd, Tromsø – save the date!

EPINOR will give one last highly interesting and relevant winter school. The event is free of charge for our members. You will be taught by experts from the International Agency for Research on Cancer(IARC) as well as Norwegian Cancer Registry. The winter school will be combined with a seminar called The Future of Epidemiology –an event open to all epidemiologists in Norway and with many top international researchers from the epidemiological field. This will be super interesting for you as junior researchers – and we plan to involve you both in some of the issues in the program as well as the social events.

Course in register-based epidemiology

The University of Oslo is hosting a course on register-based epidemiology from September 13th-17th that should be of interest to EPINOR members. Go to the course webpage for more information.

Survey - what are our alumni doing after their PhD?

EPINOR will soon send all our alumni a link to a survey intending to map what junior epidemiologists are doing after they end their PhD period. We encourage all our alumni to participate in the survey.

Congratulations on completing your PhD!
