About the Nordic Rheology Society

The Nordic Rheology Society engages people interested in rheology in the Nordic countries.


To promote and propagate rheology at all levels throughout the Nordic Countries.


To promote and propagate rheology at all levels by building a broad forum where academia and industry, in their applicational and theoretical guises can meet, share and discuss ideas to their mutual benefit.


Rheology is defined as the science of the deformation and flow of matter, which means that rheology in some form enters almost every study of material properties. In the Nordic countries, rheological measurements have become standard techniques in both industrial and academic research. The Nordic Rheology Society has been formed as a meeting ground for engineers, physicists, chemists and biologists engaged in rheology in industry and academia.
