The Nordic Society for Aerosol Research (NOSA)
The Nordic Society for Aerosol Research (NOSA) was founded in 1978. Its purpose is to promote aerosol research, interdisciplinary collaboration between members, to facilitate information to members and the general public by the arrangement of symposia, to support international collaboration and exchange of ideas, and to promote re-growth and education within aerosol sciences.
Aerosol science plays a key role in several areas.
NOSA serves as a vital forum for the Nordic Aerosol scientist to meet, interact and plan research activities together. This has lead to several projects and research collaborations. A large number of Nordic research networks has been established from the NOSA activities since NOSA was founded. NOSA’s networking activities have been crucial in improving the quality of research and education within the Nordic community, bringing scientist together at least once a year in the respective NOSA symposia. The latter organised annually since 1978, are part of NOSA activities and fulfil several of NOSA’s objectives. They bring together members of all aerosol research fields from most departments, institutes and research groups, not only form the Nordic countries but from all over the world. Last but not the least, NOSA symposia serves as small scale conferences form young Phd students and Early Career Scientists to get some first experience of international conferences with oral and poster presentation in a relaxed environment. To encourage students to improve their presentation skills, a best student presentation award is given on the final day of each symposium, along with the NOSA aerosolgist award announced by the NOSA president at the conference dinner.
