Expertise relevant to the Targeted Network
Contracts manager at Université Paul Sabatier Toulouse III since 2009, I am in charge of administrative and legal aspects of FP7 projects and other international projects in which the university is participating through its laboratories.
With a wealth of experience in negotiating grant agreements and consortium agreements of more than fifty FP7 projects currently being performed in various scientific domains, I have a good overview of intellectual property aspects in particular and of contracts clauses in general.
Liaising with researchers, the European Commission and partners of different walks of life, I achieved an insight of the expectations of each of them.
In this context, I reckon I can bring my experience to the network with the view of sharing best practices, aiming at improving our daily work, to the benefit of our researchers and our respective entity.
