It is Christmas time again, and in the management team, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent work in 2018. Especially as there is a lot to be pleased about. Our research and education are at an impressive level which we will strengthen further by rethinking the research environments - read more below. And next year, an abundance of new, exciting projects await - including taking the Skou building into use. Thank you for your patience in connection with the repeated announcements of postponement - there is little we can do about it as the building must be ready when we take it over. We wish you a happy holiday and a prosperous 2019.
