I have a degree in Biology and several postgraduate courses focusing on project management and international R&D&I. I have been working for more than 8 years in the management of national, European and international research projects. I have accompanied hundreds of researchers throughout the life cycle of their projects, from the conception of the idea to the start-up, justification and exploitation of the financed projects. This holistic view of research in various disciplines has led me to be responsible for the creation and implementation of the Office for the Promotion of European and International Projects of the Autonomous University of Madrid, where I have worked for more than 4 years. After this experience in the public sector, I started to collaborate as a freelance with various companies and institutions as Strategy Consultant and Writer, activity that continues at the moment. Furthermore, I have been Proposal Coordinator and an R & I Consultant at RTDI, a Spanish consultancy firm, during one year. Currently, I work as Technology Transfer and EU Project Officer for the Enterprise Europe Network and other EU projects at Fundación para el Conocimiento Madri+d.
I know firsthand the regulations and processes related to Horizon 2020 and its national derivatives, I have implemented work methodologies, action plans and monitoring of activities in my current company, I am a professor at the Autonomous University of Madrid in the field of European Projects, they have invited numerous conferences as a speaker and an expert on H2020, and I impart training on European funding. I also have a network of national and international contacts, both public and private sector, very broad and collaborative. In addition, I have participated in the design of communication plans in the institutions where I have worked.
