The Nordic countries published together new common vitamin D recommendations in 2012 (Nordic Nutrition Recommendations 2012, NNR2012). This two-day international workshop is organised at the University of Helsinki as a part of the project “Update on vitamin D status and its determinants in the Nordic countries”, which was financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers. It aims to provide updated information for researchers and policy makers on the effect of the NNR2012 on vitamin D intake and vitamin D status. On the first day of the workshop, the latest vitamin D research with a specific focus on the Nordic countries after the implementation of the NNR2012 is presented and discussed by leading Nordic scientists working in the vitamin D nutrition field. On the second day, a future-orientated workshop brings together experts and scientists working on vitamin D-related topics, as well as officers and stakeholders to focus on the specific problems regarding vitamin D in the Nordic countries. Based on the workshop, a report on the current state of vitamin D status in the Nordic countries will be published on the Nordic Council of Ministers website.
