We are very pleased to announce our new Programme and Project Coordinator, Sarah Holsen. Sarah has worked as a Project Advisor with the secretariat since 2016.


The position draws on Sarah's background working with public authorities and government officials with diverse cultural backgrounds as well as researchers from several universities. Sarah holds a PhD in public administration from the University of Lausanne in Switzerland.

"I'm excited about this opportunity to help shape joint efforts toward transnational cooperation in the North Sea Region. It's more important than ever to strengthen ties between countries and foster the achievement of common goals," says Sarah.

Originally from north western Illinois, near the banks of the Mississippi River, Sarah has lived nearly 20 years in five countries outside North America. She and her family have lived in Aalborg, Denmark since 2012.
