#0991: OCEANTECH: Björgolfur Hávardsson: The value of standardization work

Season 1, Ep. 991

In this episode of #LØRN Silvija talks to the innovation manager at NCE seafood innovation, Björgolfur Hávardsson. Hávardsson describe himself as maniacally interested in fish and explains in the episode why we need a cluster and why he believes that without standardization, all technological development and implementation be very chaotic. He goes on to say that there are two main customer groups that standardization is for, those who develop solutions and services and those who use it.


— We are good, not only because we have a lot of fish and because we have a coast, we are so good first and foremost because we had the curiosity and the guts to try out something so crazy as taking the salmon in a net pen, he reminds us about in the episode.
