IFN Stockholm Conference

IFN organizes an annual scientific conference on topics relating to the research programs of the institute. At this event, international scientists and IFN researchers attain inspiration for future research.

Since 2000, IFN has arranged scientific conferences on topics relating to the research programs of the institute. About 10–15 international leading researchers and 5–10 IFN researchers have participated each year.

The limited number of participants has contributed to creating an informal, constructive atmosphere, which has provided inspiration for future research and research collaboration.
