XXII Nordic Stroke Society Congress 2023

Advances in stroke care, research and translational science with Nordic and Baltic twist


University of Eastern Finland, Kuopio University Hospital and Nordic Stroke Society are honored to host XXII Nordic Stroke Society Congress in August 21-23, 2023. More than 400 stroke professionals and scientists from Nordic and Baltic countries are expected to attend the meeting. 

The last time the congress was held in Kuopio in 2001. The organization of congress and scientific program were praised, and all in all we were left with good memories. The coming program will include lectures and practical demonstrations on new approaches towards stroke prevention, acute care and rehabilitation. Short oral communications and poster session give young investigators an excellent opportunity to present their own results in an international setting.

The congress will take place in the Kuopio City Theatre, which offers a versatile venue for the scientific presentations, exhibition and social events. We will also use a virtual event platform for this congress.

We very much look forward to your participation in XXII Nordic Stroke Society Congress 2023 and to welcoming you to Kuopio.
