As a research coordinator, I support IOB in defining and operationalising its research & outreach policy. This includes identifying new and diverse funding channels for research at IOB, supporting the elaboration and follow-up of research proposals and projects, and facilitating collaboration and communication among researchers within the institute. I also work on the visibility, uptake and impact of IOB’s research activities by contributing to the communication strategy of the Institute in the field of research and by co-organising academic events in cooperation with the IOB's academic staff.
