The Nordic Committee of Senior Officials for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Food and Forestry might have a very long name, but their mission is clear. It is, for example, beneath this committee NordGen is organised. The committee consists of 16 members from Sweden, Finland, Greenland, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, Åland and the Faroe Islands.
Today, the officials visited NordGen to learn more about our important work and the challenges we are facing.
The committee was given a tour in our green house and gardens, a briefing of our in vitro- and molecular laboratories as well as extensive presentations regarding our projects, economy and the importance of gene banks, among other things.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, the committee will have a meeting in Copenhagen.
