We are happy to welcome our new colleague at SIFO, Atle Wehn Hegnes, to the REDUCE research team. Atle will be filling in for Nina as WP2 leader while she is on parental leave from August 2022. He is a sociologist leaving his position as researcher at NIBIO to return to his previous place of work at SIFO. Atle has recently published on a variety of topics i.e. sustainability risks in bioenergy, European urban agriculture, urban food systems and circular bioeconomy. We are looking forward to working with him in REDUCE.
