Congress venue

The Norwegian School of Sport Sciences

The NEDS congress 2020 will be arranged at the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences (NIH); a specialized university opened in 1968. The NIH holds a national responsibility to provide higher education and scientific research in its corresponding fields; physical education, cultural and social studies, sports medicine, sports performance, and coaching and psychology. As of 2018 a total of 195 PhDs have graduated since the very first PhD dissertation in 1990.

Surrounded by fantastic nature, at NIH you will find a plentitude of opportunities for hiking and recreational activities, by the lake Sognsvann or on the many forest trails. The university is – naturally! – provided with different sport facilities, and some of these will be available for the conference attendees. For more information in this, please see the sport activity program (soon to be launched).

We aim to give you a memorable congress experience, keeping a high scientific level, offering a varied program; and also including sporting activities for mental and physical health. During the congress you are offered oral presentations, poster presentations, workshops, lab technology experiences – and of course inspiring meetings with dedicated colleagues and friends.

Public transportation from Oslo

Oslo

A metropolitan capital

The country’s largest city is a cosmopolitan hub with an abundance of world-class architecture, museums, restaurants and shopping.

As one of Europe’s fastest growing cities this decade, Oslo is buzzing with energy from new neighbourhoods and cutting-edge food, to fashion and art scenes. Captivating landmarks like the Opera House, the Astrup Fearnley Museum and Barcode are changing the face of the city, and Oslo maintains its refreshing closeness to nature that few other capitals can match.

Nestled between the Oslofjord and forested hills, Oslo was named European Green Capital 2019 for its dedication to conserving natural areas and reducing pollution. The compact city centre is easy and safe to explore on foot or by bike, and the efficient public transport system makes the entire city accessible without a car. Oslo is also in the process of being certified as a Sustainable Destination, a seal of approval given to destinations that work systematically to reduce the negative impact of tourism.

Oslo’s restaurant scene is diverse and constantly evolving with new, innovative kitchens – many of them with a fresh approach to Norwegian ingredients and food traditions. This attitude has led to international praise, and is also central to the city’s celebrated cocktail and coffee cultures.

Norway’s capital since 1814, Oslo is home to many of the country’s most prestigious cultural institutions. First-rate opera, ballet and theatre performances are presented throughout the year, and art lovers can see famous works at the National Museum and the Munch Museum and browse through the city’s numerous galleries.
