Expertise relevant to the Targeted Network

Currently I am working as an advisor for European Research, and before this job I was working as a scientific coordinator for a European collaborative project. These jobs allowed me to acquire a good knowledge and experience in research project administration and management.



Research administration at University of Geneva is carried out by a central Research Service which is part of the chancellorship. This service includes a European grants office called Euresearch. The Euresearch office tasks include information, advice and support of researchers at pre- and post-award levels, such us:

- Information on incoming and relevant calls for proposals

- Support for research proposals preparation and submission

- Research projects negotiation with funding agency and contractual follow-up

- Information on research project management (budgeting, reporting, etc.)

- Support on research projects reporting

- Organisation of information events and trainings

The Euresearch office operates in close collaboration with relevant accounting, technology transfer, legal and human resources services of the institution.
