Anders Samuelsen holds a master's degree in political science and economics from Aarhus University in Denmark. He started his political career in 1998, and after ten combined years in the Danish and European parliaments, he co-initiated a new Danish political party in 2007. He took over leadership in 2009 and subsequently led this party to significant electoral victories, culminating with six ministerial posts in the Danish government in 2016.
He ended his political career as the Minister of Foreign Affairs and as a senior member of the Danish government's Central National Committee from 2016–2019.
Throughout his career, Anders has acquired an invaluable experience in negotiation and understanding of trade culture in Europe and overseas.

Christian Kanstrup Holm
Christian Kanstrup is currently an associate professor in virology and immunology. He is a molecular biologist by training and holds a Ph.D. in medicine from Aarhus University (Denmark).
The main focus of his research has been to improve our understanding of immune responses to virus infections. Such improved understanding could lead to the discovery of therapies and/or technologies that act broadly to fight the spread of pandemic viruses.
His most recent work has focused on SARS-CoV-2 and how molecules known from the treatment of sclerosis can both inhibit viral replication and limit inflammatory response to the virus.
Nicolas Volet holds a Ph.D. in laser physics from EPFL (Switzerland), after which he worked in Santa Barbara (USA), first as a postdoc at the University of California, Santa Barbara and later as a senior R&D engineer in a telecom company.
He develops chip-level photonic technologies for industrial applications with improved precision, cost and power efficiency. He now heads a research group working on integrated photonics at Aarhus University in Denmark.
In 2020, he co-founded UV Medico with the aim of developing and implementing light-based devices for safe germicidal applications.
