 We are happy to invite you to take part in the largest coagulation disorders meeting of the Nordic Countries, ”The 50th Nordic Coagulation Meeting”, in Helsinki on 31 August to 2 September, 2017. This meeting will celebrate the 50th year of the tradition of sharing multidisciplinary specialty expertise among colleagues from Finland and the other Nordic countries. In 2017 we are proud to invite participants also from the Baltic countries.

The meeting will include scientific and sponsored sessions from Thursday afternoon on 31 August  to Saturday afternoon on 2 September.

  • Bleeding disorders – hemophilias and von Willebrand disease: diagnostic and therapeutic issues
  • Thrombosis – thrombophilias, cancer, anticoagulation: clinical and laboratory issues
  • Primary hemostasis, complement, inflammation and coagulation

Approximately 250 participants are expected to attend. We look forward to meet hematologists and other clinicians, nurses as well as scientists and laboratory experts – all interested in the field of coagulation.

The congress venue is Finlandia Hall and we have pre-booked accommodations at the hotels Crowne Plaza,  Scandic Park and Holiday Inn Helsinki City Centre, all  within a short walking distance from Finlandia Hall.

Together, let’s make a memorable meeting with high scientific quality combined with a relaxing social program.

“Together” is also the theme for the year 2017, the centenary year of Finnish independence that will be celebrated throughout the whole year with a comprehensive and diverse program of events open to all Finns and friends of Finland.

We look forward to meet you in the  50th Nordic Coagulation Meeting.
