Sissel Beate Rønning, Senior Scientist, Nofima
Sissel Beate Rønning is passionate about how we can produce food in a new and modern way – to be able to feed a growing population. Her primary focus is: Can we produce meat and alternative food in the laboratory? How to utilise rest material from the food industry in this process? How does the future of food look like?
