In this place here at the conference is a good space and room to meet people who are not too scientific, but very pragmatic and oriented towards products, and that is where my interest is. There are also very nice people at the conference

So, thank you for inviting me to the Nordic Seaweed Conference.
It is such a pleasure to come back.
I was here six years ago, and it was a wonderful location, and it is just an exciting place to learn.
