I am a specialist for external funding at the Grants Office. The focus of my work is primarily on EIT RawMaterials.

I have a background in Entrepreneurship. I finished my PhD at LTU in 2008 and I also have a master degree in Business Administration in 2003. I have worked at the County Administrative Board of Norrbotten with the EU-program Interreg Nord and with international cooperation in Arctic and Barents.

I offer the following support to the University's researchers:

  • Assisting in the development of research and education within EIT RawMaterials.

  • Assisting in identifying current calls.

  • Acquire and convey knowledge of rules and conditions applying to the financing.

  • Help during the application process.

  • Information dissemination, workshops and courses.
