NORDUnet congratulates Dorte Olesen with the prestigious appointment. The inclusion of a leader from the Nordic and European Research and Education Networking community in this crucial effort of the UN is an unambiguous sign of recognition of both past and future achievements of our community, and of Dorte Olesen’s achievements in particular.
