NOSA Mission

The NOSA board's vision and work

To promote interdisciplinary and international collaboration, re-growth and education within aerosol research, and information to members and the public.


The NOSA ECS board's vision and work
The NOSA Early Career Scientists’ (ECS) board consists of ECS that work to promote the opportunities and secure the interests of Nordic ECS that are engaged in aerosol research. Our main goal is to promote the careers of ECS. We work hard to achieve this by organising events for ECS and enhancing the visibility of ECS as a group, but also as individuals. During the NOSA symposium and other large conferences held within the boundaries of the Nordic countries, we organise in-depth tutorials on hot aerosol related topics, social get-togethers, and workshops on career development issues. We also keep the ECS posted about relevant upcoming courses across Nordic universities and institutes. We are the voice of ECS in the main NOSA board!
