Project-partners

This is a list of the project-partners who were part of the original grant-application. Since then we've been contacted by several parties who want to be part of this project, and later on we will also publish these organizations and names. But for now, meet the project-partners that have been with us all the way.

Here are the partners in the Valuing Norwegian Wool project. SIFO heads up the project in collaboration with several different partners, both in Norway and internationally. We have listed everyone for your information and will be linking up to their home-pages so that you can read more about them there.
