Gunnel Gustafsson, Director of NordForsk, says:
- Nordic research infrastructure cooperation is important, and the appointment of the high-level advisory group indicates that the expectation is that even more emphasis will follow. Therefore, the NordForsk Board needs good advice regarding priorities. This is crucial not least with regard to linking Nordic and international research infrastructures.
