NSMR, the Norwegian Society for Magnetic Resonance, is an independent organization encouraging cooperation between the different parts of the Norwegian MR and NMR communities. The organization was officially established on January 17 2008. The organization did also change its name from NMRNC (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance National Committee) to NSMR (Norwegian Society for Magnetic Resonance) on this date. The organization is independent of the other Norwegian Scientific Organizations. NSMR is arranging the Norwegian National MR meetings in January every second year (formerly - the Norwegian National NMR Meetings).
