Research matters is a collection of selected highlights from the extensive range of academic activities at NIBIO. These are activities and outcomes that each in their own way, contribute to significant knowledge in industry, management, and society at both local, national, and international levels. We hope these highlights inspire further exploration within these and many other exciting results from NIBIO's activities.
