Since the early Nineties, I have been working on international projects and have been a member in international networks and consortia. I have lived and worked in a number of European countries and have a strong track record in cooperating with different actors in successful ways.
Since 2007, I am employed as Senior Adviser for Internationalisation at NOVA (Norwegian Social Research Institute). This position entails informing and supporting colleagues at all levels in developing their research proposals as well as assisting and guiding them in making applications for funding in response to calls in international programmes, e.g. Horizon Europe. I am responsible for the overall coordination of NOVA’s involvement in Horizon Europe and I am leading working groups on Horizon Europe at NOVA and at the Centre for Welfare and Labour Research, which consists of four research institutes, including NOVA.
Since May 2017 I am involved in the Horizon 2020 project ‘DARE – Dialogue About Radicalisation and Equality’ as Impact Manager (May 2017 – October 2021, http://www.dare-h2020.org/).
Since 2016, I have been a Member of the Norwegian National Reference Groups for Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 6 ‘Europe in a changing world - Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies’ (2016 – 2019) and Horizon Europe Cluster 2 ‘Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society’ (since 2020).
For the last 15 years, I have been a member of EARMA, the European Association of Research Managers and Administrators, and from 2017 until 2021 a member of EARMA’s Policy and Representation Committee focusing on societal impact and organisational impact strategies. Since 2016, I have been an active member of AESIS - The Network for Advancing and Evaluating the Societal Impact of Science.
