    Dear colleagues,

    I am happy to invite you to our NJF Conference on Horticulture in Tallinn, Estonia on June 10th -13th 2019.

    Link to Conference website!

    As you know the NJF – Nordic Association of Agricultural Science was founded in 1918 to promote scientific cooperation cross the borders of Scandinavia. Today, a century later we are still committed to this mission to encourage the exchange of knowledge in agriculture between our Nordic-Baltic countries.

    The horticultural conference in Estonia in 2019 will be an excellent opportunity to present ongoing research and collaborations within a wide range of topics, It will also be a possibility to meet colleagues and find new partners for development of horticulture in a broad perspective.

    Although the conference has a Nordic-Baltic perspective, we welcome participants from all countries to take part and enjoy the hospitality of our Estonian colleagues and their beautiful country.

    Welcome in June 2019 to Estonia!

    Selfoss, Iceland, September 27-29, 2022

    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.
