The Nordic Congress of Gerontology (NKG) is arranged every second year in the Nordic countries and next year Sweden will be hosting the event. The 27th edition will be held at Karolinska Institutet on 12–14 June 2024. It is anticipated that 800 people and scholars from different parts of the world will take part, offering a diverse array of distinctive perspectives on the challenges and opportunities linked to population ageing. Registration will open on 2 October 2023.

Ageing in a transforming world

The 27th Nordic Congress of Gerontology will provide a range of presentation forms including keynotes, symposia, oral presentations, and topic-specific poster tours. In addition, there will be spotlight sessions where invited experts will discuss key themes in a creative and engaging manner.

We welcome multidisciplinary contributions reflecting the scientific pillars of the Nordic Gerontological Federation, i.e., biological and medical sciences; behavioural and social sciences; humanities and art; as well as health/social policy and practice. 

Karolinska Institutet (KI) Campus Solna will be the main congress venue!

The congress dinner, at Münchenbryggeriet on Södermalm, will feature live entertainment as part of a pleasant social programme. For those of you coming from afar, we hope you will take the opportunity to enjoy all that Stockholm has to offer.


Registration to the congress and call for abstracts will open on 2 October 2023.
