My latest article “Individual and organizational identity economics: the case of sustainability” has just been published at the academic journal DLO – Development and Learning in Organizations (ISSN: 1477-7282). The article introduces identity economics in the individual and organizational level, and highlights its impact on organizational performance, especially when dealing with foundational issues such as sustainability.

Our team at NIBIOis leading WP3, where together with our partners from ECOZEPT and Università di Bologna we examine biodiversity on several value chains in Europe. In addition, we provide data, analysis and insights on various other WPs in the project.
My good colleague from NIBIO Hilde Halland is defending her PhD on November 3, at the UiT- The Arctic University of Norway. The program starts at 1015 with her trial lecture: “Drivers and barriers for a sustainability transformation of Norwegian food systems”. Then, after a short break, she continues with the presentation of her PhD Thesis “Farm sustainability as a sustainability learning process in Arctic Norway” that I was co-supervisor.
Together with Dr. Inger Martinussen we represented the NIBIO research team on the General Assembly for the BioValue Project that took place at MAICh (Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania) in Crete, Greece.
I presented our first deliverables in the project and our plans for the coming work.
This was an excellent arrangement that also offered us the opportunity to learn more of our sister projects Radiant EU, DIVINFOOD, and CropDIVA.

My talk (50:00) was on “The emergence of bio-economy and the importance of matchmaking in value creation for biomass industries” where I discussed the new socio-economic paradigm that bioeconomy brings and how businesses, and especially SMEs, can flourish into this new reality.
Excellent discussions today at our workshop “How can we help SMEs towards circular economy business models?”. My talk was on “The emergence of bio-economy and the importance of matchmaking in value creation for biomass industries” where I discussed the new socio-economic paradigm that bioeconomy brings and how businesses, and especially SMEs, can flourish into this new reality.
Matchmaking –i.e., finding the right partner, becomes increasingly important for the successful shift towards increased circularity and opens the businesses for new opportunities.
