Steering groups are Forum for Scientific Debate

The dairies control and closely monitor projects via chairmanship of and participation in three interdisciplinary project steering groups encompassing all MFF research projects. The steering groups consist of dairy representatives and researchers. At the semiannual meetings, project results and plans are discussed; in addition, the steering groups coordinate interaction among the individual projects. It is important to the dairy sector that the projects complement each other professionally and fit the actual research strategy of MFF.

The three steering groups are each headed by a dairy representative: 

  • Technology: Brian Dohn-Bassøe, Vice President, SupplyChain Excellence, Arla Foods amba 
  • Microbiology: Poul J. Pedersen, Managing Director, Thise Dairy amba 
  • Nutrition and Health: Henrik J. Andersen, Senior R&D Manager, Arla Foods Ingredients
