Who we are

Who we are

North Sea Futures Denmark IVS is an independent, not-for-profit company and network organisation, founded by Anne-Mette Jørgensen (Director) and Michael Brinch-Pedersen. We do not work with a fixed group of staff, but seek to involve experts on relevant issues on an ad-hoc basis.

We are working with a broad network of experts and stakeholders, incl. academic institutions, green NGOs and private companies, who support our work and help us with strategic advice. At the moment, we are working to bring this network together in a more formalized International Forum on Offshore and Marine Ecosystems (IFOME).
