As head of the center I work to initiate new areas of activities and to secure political support and funding to projects and initiatives under the overall strategy of the Center. This involves building networks and partnerships by raising awareness and engaging with multiple partners from business, public authorities and knowledge institutions to ensure commitment and local anchoring. Further, to ensure knowledge transfer and best practices to other related institutions in Denmark and internationally. My educational background is a Master’s degree in Biology (1999), a Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry and Nutrition (2006). I have been working for Kalundborg Municipality, Development, since 2009. Initially as an external consultant, later as project manager primarily within test- and demonstration activities in EU projects, and most recently as Head of Symbiosis Center Denmark.
