Nordic Society Oikos' mission is "to support scientific research in ecology and related disciplines and to stimulate and enhance communication between stakeholders in ecological research in the Nordic countries and beyond." 

Every second year, one of the Nordic countries organises a conference to bring together researchers working on ecology and evolutionary biology.

The theme of the Nordic OIKOS conference in 2018 is “The importance of ecological science in society”, with a solid focus on the need for fundamental ecological science.

Our aim is to bring together:

  • the Nordic countries
  • different ecological disciplines
  • ecological science and society
