Nordicom's Director | 30 Jan 2015

Ulla Carlsson:

                                              Colleagues and Friends,

A few days from now I will be leaving my position as Director of Nordicom. I find it hard to believe that it has been 40 years since I came to Nordicom, which was then only a fledgling – born of collaboration between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

Looking back, I am very happy and most grateful for all the fruitful collaborations and stimulating contacts between the Nordic region and other countries – in the global arena as well as region-to-region – that have presented themselves in Nordicom’s orbit to date.
