The Nordic Lung Cancer Symposium is held every second year. The four Nordic countries take turn in organizing the event, and in 2020 Bergen is the venue. Due to the covid-19 pandemic we had to postpone the 14th Nordic Lung Cancer Symposium planned in 2020. Although digital meetings have made it possible for scientists and clinicians to share new research and progress, nothing beats a real meeting where colleagues can get to know each other. Therefore, to facilitate for a physical conference, rather than a virtual conference, we have decided to wait until 2022 before hosting the 14th Nordic Lung Cancer Symposium in Bergen.
The Nordic Lung Cancer Symposium is an important meeting place for clinicians and scientists in lung cancer to exchange knowledge, experience and ideas, and to promote collaboration and networking. It is a meeting where young and established clinicians and scientists in lung cancer meet across the borders.
The scientific program is developed by representatives from the lung cancer group in each of the countries; Eeva-Maija Nieminen (Finland), Jens Benn Sørensen (Denmark), Signe Friesland (Sweden), and Odd Terje Brustugun (Norway). The program focuses on clinical topics that are relevant for doctors and scientists working in lung cancer in the Nordic countries.
