Dr. Ana Santiago, the EPIBOOST project manager, visited UGent to receive training from the UGent EU-team
From April 18th to April 20th, 2023, Dr. Ana Sofia Santiago, EPIBOOST project manager and CESAM-UAVR Science and Technology Manager, visited UGent in the framework of Ghent University Staff Exchange week. Dr. Santiago was introduced to the the structure and mechanisms of support implemented at UGent concerning research and innovation in the European landscape and particularly regarding Horizon Europe funding opportunities.
According to Dr. Santiago, this was a very productive training week, plentiful of opportunities to exchange experiences and learn on best practices to develop research management towards world-class levels. The operation of the EU-team to promote research funding and research networking was largely shared and a bridge between CESAM and UGent was definitively built at the research management and administration level.
Looking forward to the next opportunities that EPIBOOST will allow for these exchanges!
