The 23rd and 24th of Februaery, The Kirkenes Conference will be held as plan at Thon Hotel Kirkenes. With everything we have been through during the pandemic, the Kirkenes Conference is maybe more important than ever, says Guro Brandshaug who is head of the conference.

The number of covid 19 cases are increasing rapidly in Norway. However, the number of severely sick persons is decreasing. This has made it possible for the Kirkenes Conference to continue planning for a physical conferemnce in Kirkenes.
