The venue

Favrholm is situated 30 km north of Copenhagen in lush rural surroundings. Conference rooms are filled with pleasant natural light through great panorama windows that overlook a lake surrounded by green pastures. The windows offer a view of rich bird life and grazing cattle nearby.
 
Favrholm is a modernised manor farm with a history of more than 500 years. Kings and nobles, high officials, researchers and thinkers have all set foot on ‘the beautiful island’ (Favr = beautiful, holm = island).
 
Now it is a protected landmark and great care has been taken to honour and preserve the original farm house when the site was renovated and expanded with conference facilities in 2011. New meets old at Favrholm, successfully combining modern culture with Nordic tradition. The Nordic spirit is a recurrent theme – not only in the landscape and the buildings, but also in the décor, the choice of furniture and the exclusive Nordic cooking.

The participants of the conference will have exclusive use of the premises for the duration the conference. This means that no other parties will be present thus providing a more undisturbed environment for participants to network and interact.
 
The physical surroundings are ideal for informal talks in smaller groups during breaks. Small self-service kitchenettes can be found throughout the premises where visitors can help themselves to refreshments and small “treats” at any time during the day.
 
Visitors are challenged to learn, to explore and to expand their thinking. A new auditorium with large screens and podiums in all corners can serve many different purposes and formats. Special attention has been paid to the shape and interior styling of the meeting rooms in order to promote creativity and knowledge sharing among the guests.
 
All conference participants have access to changing and bathing facilities on site.

All participants of the conference will be checked into Favrholm Campus (the actual venue), Hotel Hillerød or Pharmakon.

Both Pharmakon and Hotel Hillerød are located less than 5 minutes from the venue. A free shuttle bus service is available from both hotels exclusively to conference participants during conference hours until late evening for those who want to stay late at Favrholm.

Single hotel rooms for all participants are already pre-booked. Allocation to rooms will be decided by the conference planning committee.
