Fostering international cooperation in science and technology

I am strongly convinced of the benefits and the necessity of international research cooperation. Having held leadership positions in national and international research management and science policy for many years, I believe in the necessity of bringing researchers together to foster understanding, to bring about innovation and to drive change. Using the strength of diversity (in disciplines, in geography, in generations, etc.) while working towards the same goal is what brings us forward.


Familiar with national, European (Horizon 2020) and international approaches and opportunities to support international exchange and collaboration, I help you find the opportunities that are right for you. I provide access to the networks that you need to reach your goals. I also work with you to enhance your or your organisation’s visibility in the European and global research context.
