The 5th Annual Conference of Nordic Network for Diversity in Physics, NORNDiP.

We are pleased to announce the 5th Annual Conference of the Nordic Network for Diversity in Physics, NORNDiP. It will take place at the historical Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark on:

May 24th and 25th, 2023

The conference will feature speakers from each of the Nordic countries presenting their research in various fields of physics, as well as speakers on gender and diversity topics.

Invited keynote speakers are:

Anne L’Huillier, Professor of Atomic Physics at the Department of Physics, Lund University and recipient of the Wolf Prize in physics in 2022.

Liv Hornekær, Professor of Materials Science at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Aarhus University and center leader of the Center for Interstellar Catalysis (InterCat).

Marie Valentin Beck, advisor of diversity and inclusion at BureauM, Copenhagen, who has helped develop a gender diversity strategy for the Niels Bohr Institute.

Registration is now open. Please go to to register for the conference. We invite you to submit your abstracts for a poster or short presentation.

Attendance is free of charge and all are welcome.

Abstract submission is open until May 10th. Registration for the conference is open until May 15th.


A new online course:  Physics and Gender

Why is it that physics, which is considered objective and not affected by who is doing the research, teaching, and learning, is so dominated by men among its practitioners?

Why do some groups of people select not to come to physics – or to leave the area?

Could the explanation be found in the culture of our labs and institutions? Or is it deeper – in the subject and how it is (re)presented? How do we make physics more welcoming for a larger part of the population?

We are now offering a course that is addressing these and similar questions. It is a joint project by Stockholm and Lund Universities, supported by NordForsk and administrated by Lund University.

The course is open to all interested students and personnel at universities in Scandinavia.. All compulsory parts of the course is offered online, but we plan to offer one opportunity to meet face-to-face.

The deadline for application is February 2nd, 2023!
