We would like to thank all participants, invited speakers, oral and poster presenters, chair persons and supporters for your contribution in making the virtual NNC 2020 conference a success! It was unfortunate we could not see the most of you, but thank you for listening and being active in the chat. You truly made this a conference! 

Please note that the conference recordings will be available for registered participants on the conference platform until Sunday, December 20. The recordings from the sessions can be found under the session rooms, as links in the programme. 

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year – and particularly the latter wish has a special meaning this year! And see you in NNC2024 in Oslo! 

On the behalf of all organizers,
Mikael Fogelholm and Kirsi Laitinen


Human Nutritional Sciences – Multidisciplinary Insights and Solutions

Welcome to join the virtual Nordic Nutrition Conference, December 14–16, 2020

It is our pleasure to welcome all human nutrition researchers, clinical dietitians and all other experts to join the virtual NNC 2020 conference organised by the Finnish Society for Nutrition Research. The Scientific Programme Committee and the Local Organising Committee have composed an interesting and up-to-date scientific program.

We’ll offer plenary lectures, review sessions and close to 200 short abstract presentations. The review sessions focus on nutritional physiology, clinical nutrition and public health nutrition. Furthermore, about half of the sessions offer problem-based, multidisciplinary approaches to the most important, topical/actual nutritional and health challenges. We want to bring forth how human nutrition works at its best.

The plenary sessions and some of the oral sessions will be sent live from Helsinki and all other oral sessions will be available during the conference at a video library where you can listen to the sessions when it is best convenient for you. There will also be a possibility to interact with presenters via chat. For the live sessions there will also be time for live chat discussions.

Please feel warmly welcome to attend the virtual NNC2020 conference in December 2020.



Mikael Fogelholm, Professor in Public Health Nutrition, University of Helsinki, President of NNC 2020



Kirsi Laitinen, Associate Professor, University of Turku, President of The Finnish Society for Nutrition Research, Vice-president of NNC 2020
