Danish Centre for Food and Agri appoint new Director
Niels Halberg is a well-recognised researcher with international experience as a centre leader, says vice-dean Kurt Nielsen, AU. He points out that the appointment of Niels Halberg will strengthen the ability of the university to deliver high quality, research-based advice. Research in agriculture and food will, meanwhile, be able to take advantage of Halberg’s experience and ability to mould international research collaborations benefiting the Danish agricultural sector as a whole.
Both ICROFS and DCA deliver research and public sector services to the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries. The two centres are now strengthening their cooperation in that Niels Halberg is taking over the leadership of DCA whilst remaining in charge of ICROFS.
