NRI has 3 types of affiliates; members, partners and networks.


At the core of our activities are our members, dedicated professionals within health research and innovation from universities, hospitals, from research institutions and from the industry. Most of our members have previously taken part in one of the NRI-conferences, but that is not a prerequisite.

As a member, you will receive news about what is happening within the field of medical research and innovation in the Nordic area, you are invited to join one of our specialist networks and you will receive invitations to future conferences and other events.

NRI membership is free of charge. 



The NRI partners  are universities, hospitals and research institutions in the Nordic Region. The NRI partners represent the formal body of the network. They decide the overall policy of the organization and elect the Board and the Programme Committee (Advisory Group).
