About the conference

The Nordyrk conference is an annual conference of the Nordic research network on vocational education and training. The conference venue alternates every year between the Nordic countries, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. The purpose of the conference is to present and discuss current research and developmental projects related to vocational education and training, as well as to meet, exchange ideas, and find opportunities for future collaboration.

Information about volcanic activity

The volcanic activity at the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland has been concentrated in that area and the effects so far localized. Air traffic has not been affected and Iceland remains a safe destination. We are therefore continuing with our plans to host the NordYrk conference in Reykjavik in June
