Knut Hove is looking forward to share UBMs knowledge and reflections about the challenges of food science in our time during the anniversary conference.
In the lead article of the new edition of the UMB-magazin “UBM-nytt” which is being issued on the day of the celebration, Knut Hove shares some of his personal reflections on the development of the former agricultural college “Den Høiere Landbrugsskole” that started with six teachers and 32 students in 1859, to the modern University UMB with 3150 students and almost 1000 employees.
