In my current position as Research Assistant at the Work Research Institute (AFI), I’m involved in two EU-funded research and innovation projects:
YouCount is an EU Horizon 2020 Citizen Social Science project that addresses one of Europe’s most pressing challenges: How to increase social inclusion for youth? On the national level, I'm part of the Norwegian research team investigating social inclusion of youth from minority backgrounds through employability (social entrepreneurship) in Gamle Byen, Oslo. On the international level, I coordinate among case partners and work packages and work with research communication. For more information, please visit the project website: https://www.youcountproject.eu/
The Edible Cities Network is an EU-funded project fostering sustainable urban food innovations for greener, edible and liveable cities. EdiCitNet brings together people to tackle urban challenges from climate change to social exclusion by co-creating and testing edible, nature-based solutions in Living Labs. I support the latter in Andernach, Berlin, Havana, Rotterdam and Oslo with research and coordination activities like conducting interviews, producing publications and organising events.
