Conference on Research in Biomedical and Health Sciences
Every other year the School of Health Sciences hosts a conference on research in biomedical and health sciences. The mission of the conference is to share the latest trends in biomedical and health sciences each time and increase interdisciplinary collaboration.
The programme each year includes around 300 presentations that cover most fields of biomedical and health sciences with some sessions being entirely in English. The conference is free and open to everyone.
The conference will be held for the 19th time in 2019.
The School of Health Science regularly hosts a conference on innovation in health sciences. The conference is open to everyone within or outside of the University of Iceland who wants to present a project or an idea on innovation in health sciences. The conference was held for the third time in November 2017.
Presentation of New Professors
The School of Health Sciences celebrates the academic promotion and hiring of new professors with a special introductory lecture. The events include a review of the professors' background and greatest achievements and their own vision for the future. The events end with a chance to celebrate with the new professor.
The purpose of the introductory lectures is to present the new professor and their work with the aims of increasing collaboration within the school and honouring the professor's position.
The School of Health Sciences regularly hosts various other events, such as lectures, seminars, and symposiums. The School also participates in centralised events hosted by the University of Iceland. The faculties of the School of Health Sciences often organise their own events. See the UI event schedule for information on upcoming events.
