Competence is key to secure innovative and sustainable solutions in the industry, and here at NCE Seafood Innovation we believe that it is important to work with young talent to achieve just that. Our Seafood Trainee program hosts almost 30 new graduates every year, with a background in anything from economics and communication to biology and aquaculture. This fall we will have a new trainee join the cluster.

Elise is currently finishing her masters in media and communication at University of Bergen, while working part time at the cluster with communication and event coordination. In August she will start the Seafood Trainee program, while working full time at NCE Seafood Innovation. As always we want to get to know our new team members right away, and here is what Elise had to say:

Who am I?

Right now, a (bit stressed) masterstudent at UiB, writing my master thesis in media and communication. Otherwise I am a real «bergenser», outside whenever the sun shines, playing football or hiking.

What is your role in the NCE Seafood Innovation Team?

I´m the lucky new Seafood Trainee, and I will be working as a communication assistant, fishing after good sentences to spread the word about our projects and members.

What are you most looking forward to in your position as Seafood Trainee?

I´m looking forward to learn more about the industry and the people in it, and how working together can help us finding better solutions for a more sustainable future.

Describe yourself with three words:

Positive, (trying to be) funny and active.

If you had one more hour each day, what would you do?

Preferably hanging with friends and familiy, but more realisticly, probably watching Netflix…


We are so happy to have you join us Elise, and we look forward to learn from your expertise and have you with us full time.
