Lofoten, September 7-9 2022
The NOR-KLEB-ET and KLEB-GAP annual meeting was held in Lofoten in September 2022. Finally we could meet in real life for the annual meeting after three years of digital meetings. Both national and international partners and collaborators were able to travel to Ballstad in Lofoten, and we had a very successful meeting, both scientifically and social, in beautiful surroundings.
