About the conference

To support cross pollination and a free atmosphere of trust and openness the maximum number of participants at the conference will be 160 including faculty. The conference will take place in beautiful surroundings north of Copenhagen, isolated from outside intrusions. The participants will be staying at or near the conference site and no other parties will be present during the conference period.

The aim is to create an atmosphere where fresh research and new ideas can be discussed freely.  The conference is fully sponsored by the Novo Nordisk Foundation who covers the conference fee, hotel, transport and meals during the conference. Participants cover their own travel expenses.
