At 17:30 on 9 January 2014 at an open meeting at the 31st Nordic Geological Winter Meeting, the Nordic Union for Quaternary Research (NORDQUA) was reborn.

NORDQUA excursion to southern Sweden, 2015

All present were in support of restarting the association, as proposed by Eiliv Larsen (NGU) and Helena Alexandersson (Lund University) and an email list of members was created. It was decided to keep membership free and Norwegian members from University of Bergen and NGU volunteered to organise the ‘first’ excursion in to Sunnmøre, Norway. A ‘second’ excursion to southern Sweden was organised in 2015 by Mark Johnson and colleagues from Gothenberg University. Excursions to Finnish Lapland and Iceland have also been planned.

In 2018, at the 33rd Nordic Geological Winter Meeting in Copenhagen, a secretariat team took over leadership of NORDQUA comprising Anna Hughes (University of Bergen), Ívar Örn Benediktsson, (University of Iceland), Matthew Owen (GEUS), and Carl Regnell (University of Bergen).

Since its rebirth in 2014 NGU has kindly covered the annual running costs of the NORDQUA website.
