I am a specialist in research funding at Grants Office and I can offer you support and advice in the application process. We have also workshops within areas such as gender issues, impact or funding strategies eg. In project planning and in project management, I can also provide support for administrative coordination.

I have got a PhD in Entrepreneurship from LTU in 2008, and I have also a Master's degree in Business Administration, from 2003. Previously, I have worked at the County Administrative Board in Norrbotten with the EU funding program Interreg Nord and with international partnership / collaboration in the Arctic and Barents region.
