About SSSD

The Scandinavian Society for the Study of Diabetes (SSSD) was established in the 1960s. The aim of the SSSD is to bring together people with an interest in diabetes research, both from Nordic countries and elsewhere. We hold annual meetings aiming to strengthen collaborative relationships that will lead to advancement in diabetes research. The international board of the SSSD presently consists of Bjørn Olav Åsvold (chair) and Kåre Birkeland for Norway, Johanna Lempainen and Heli Siljander for Finland, Malin Flodström Tullberg and Jens Lagerstedt for Sweden, Niels Grarup and Kurt Høylund for Denmark and Kolbeinn Gudmundsson and Bolli Thorsson from Iceland. We strongly encourage everyone residing in - and also outside - the Nordic countries who is interested in diabetes research to participate in the yearly meetings.

The last SSSD meeting was held in Stockholm, Sweden, 10-12 April 2019. 


SSSD2020 will be held at Scandic Nidelven in Trondheim, Norway, April 16-18 2020.

Stay tuned for more information.
