On Day 1 of the conference we will present the most current research on mental health and wellbeing carried out by PROMENTA's many PhD and postdoctoral fellows - covering the full range of PROMENTA research areas from genetics and neurocognitive development, to psychosocial determinants, drug use and drug policy, and methodological development. 

We will also have keynote speeches from invited researchers Dr. Cathryn Lewis, Dr. Gael Varoquaux and Dr. Kimberly Noble.

Target audience: Mainly researchers and students, but all are welcome. 

September 29th, 2022: 

Day 2 features keynote speeches from Cormac Russell, Ragnhild Bang Nes and Isaac Prilleltensky. This day features research from PROMENTA's Intervention and Gap-bridging research group and invited researchers, as well as introductions to practical interventions from a variety of organizations and institutions. You will learn more about quality of life distributions, the significance of neighborhoods for health and wellbeing, and important determinants for better mental health among children and adolescents. 

There will also be opportunities to challenge your mind and body at one of several activity stations - inspired by the "Five ways to wellbeing". 

Target audience: Researchers, politicians and practitioners working with or interested in public health, mental health and quality of life interventions. 

The final programme with the names and titles of all our speakers will be available after the summer, but you can register for the conference already now.  

You may register for both days or the day of your preference individually. Attendance at Day 1 is free, whereas there's a fee of NOK 1000 for Day 2 of the conference. Employees and elected officials of municipalities and counties associated with Sunne kommuner, as well as employees and students at the University of Oslo and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health are not subject to the conference fee. You may use the discount code "2030" if this applies to you.
