The Norwegian Environmental Chemistry Symposium (NECS
Builds upon a long lasting national tradition of Norwegian conferences on environmental chemistry dating back to the annual Norwegian environmental chemistry winter meetings (1975 – 2003). In this tradition, NECS has been developed as a regularmeeting series for a Norwegian professional network on all aspects of environmental chemistry. The NECS Symposia will provide an inspiring platform for interdisciplinary knowledge transfer and scientitifc discussions. The NECS symposium series are organised under the auspice of Norwegian Chemical Society’s Division for Analytical Chemistry (NKS-FAK) as an independent organisation. The next 3 days symposium will be held 31 January to 2 February 2022 in Geilo and is expected to attract more than 100 participants.

Status - challenges - outlook'
The aim of the symposium is to bring together Norwegian and international specialists to examine and exchange experiences in this continuing growing field and encourage exchange of ideas and knowledge:

How Norway solved environmental problems hitherto since the 1960s.
Recent developments and state-of-the-art knowledge in main areas of environmental chemistry.
Major environmental chemistry challenges today.
Moving forward covering our immediate challenges to 2030 and in the long term towards 2050.

 Background  and status of environmental chemistry conferences in Norway
Due to the expressed interest for establishing a Nordic conference platform in environmental chemistry, the well established Norwegian winter meetings were gradually extended to a conference for Norwegian – Swedish environmental chemists (2003 – 2008) and then as a Nordic Environmental Chemistry Conference (NECC 2010 – 2016). Unfortunately, for the following 5 years, no NECC meetings have been organised and the conference series was not expected to be reactivated. Therefore, based on the need for a continuous national platform for professional networking and knowledge exchange in environmental chemistry, the Norwegian Organisation Committee has decided to reactivate the national Norwegian Environmental Chemistry Symposium with international attendance.
