NJF Nordic Agricultural Congress 2022 – Agriculture in the Nordic Hemisphere

Iceland, August 2022 (exact dates to be announced later)

The Nordic Association of Agricultural Science, NJF, welcomes participants to our 27th International Congress on Nordic Agriculture. Besides gathering participants of the Nordic Hemisphere, this congress also celebrates a centennial jubilee. Our first NJF congress was held in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1921 and last time we visited Iceland was in 1995. We have thus waited 27 years to return to our Icelandic colleagues and do hope that participants all over the world are curious to meet and experience the hospitality of Iceland.
