The XXXVIII Nordic Congress in Clinical Biochemistry in Reykjavík 10-13th of May 2022 has been cancelled.

The XXXVIII Nordic Congress in Clinical Biochemistry in Reykjavík 10-13th of May 2022 has been cancelled. 


The Covid-19 pandemy is still at large and nobody can predict what comes next. 

 

With this in mind it is impossible to organize a congress of this size with invited speakers, booked hotels, other financial commitments and not to mention the cost for the companies and participants in case of cancellation.

 

It is therefore with great sadness the Board of the Icelandic Society for Clinical Biochemistry has reluctantly decided to cancel the congress.

 

We hope to see you all at the next Nordic meeting in Sweden in 2024 or sooner.

 

With the very best New Years wishes

 

 

Leifur Franzson

This incredibly picturesque church is located in @northiceland and it is the oldest turf church in Iceland - Grafarkirkja’s history dates back to the 17th century! 🙌🏻 Interestingly, the wall around the church and the graveyard has a circle shape, which makes the church especially unique. 
👉🏻 Note that the church is closed inside to the public in order to preserve it but you can still admire it from the outside 😍 #inspiredbyiceland

The fresh lava field from Fagradalsfjall 🌋

Fagradalsfjall has built up a lava shield that covers an area of about 5 square kilometers since it started erupting in March 2021. Though the eruption is officially over, watching the huge lava field from above via helicopter ride is almost equally impressive 🤩

You’re never short of magnificent sight at Snæfellsnes peninsula, @westiceland 💙  Djupalonssandur is a beautiful pebbled beach, with a series of rocks of mysterious form emerging from the ocean. It is one of the few areas that lead down to the sea along this coast with its high dramatic cliffs.
