Competence for the future

In 2022 NCE Seafood Innovation established a new competence program for the seafood industry. 

The program aims to provide knowledge and inspiration for new circular business models across value chains and more circular economic solutions.  

It is facilitated in collaboration with Sveinung Jørgensen and Lars Jacob Tynes Pedersen, leading experts in sustainable business and circular economy. They lead the Centre for Sustainable Business at NHH.
