About the congress and event framework 
Via Nordica 2016 will take place in Trondheim on 8 -10 June 2016. The venue is Clarion Hotel & Congress Trondheim. Estimated number of participants is 800 – 1000.
The programme will emphasise climate and environment and highlight the transport sector challenges. Different from former NVF congresses, there will not be any exhibition. Sponsoring companies and organisations may promote themselves on the Congress website and mobile app, or attract attention by sponsoring parts of the event. 
The congress will last for three days and take place both at the congress hotel and at the University of Science and Technology (NTNU), in addition to site visits/inspections.
The social programme includes among other things, the Nidaros Cathedral, the Archbishop’s Palace (Erkebispegården), and of course the Congress Gala Dinner!
Theme for the congress
The theme chosen is “Our climate – your environment” - what can be done in order to achieve reliable and sustainable forms of transport? The conference will emphasise transport as a challenge both globally and locally. Globally by the transport sector CO2-emissions, and locally as a cause of reduced air quality, noise and traffic accidents.
The programme springs from the NVF’s four strategic themes:
- Safe and environmentally sound transport systems
- Quality- and resource-optimal transport systems
- Competent organisations and efficient structure
- Innovation and renewal
Large road construction projects have an impact on society development and transport solutions. The program will therefore focus on already finished projects and new under planning. The aim is to present experiences and possibilities to meet new challenges emphasizing climate change and environment more than before. We will also present technological possibilities to make visible challenges from starting the planning process until use and maintenance of the road. Focus will be on life cycle analyses and future-oriented solutions, which are to reduce the disadvantages of road transport, including energy use and CO2 emissions.
