As administrative coordinator I helped to organise the SFF opening in March 2013 and take part in the day to day running of the center.

I am part of the advisory team for externally financed projects at the Divison of Research Management UiB. My main responsibilities are the Norwegian Center of Excellence scheme (SFF), the Center for research based innovation scheme and the European Research Council (ERC).

My other expert areas are EUs Marie Sklodowska Curie programs and EUs collaboration programs.

I also worked on the central coordination of RCNs SFF III call in Spring 2011.

I was in charge of the divisions newsletter FunderFinder.

I studied Biology at Darmstadt University of Technology and hold a PhD in Biology from the University of Freiburg. I worked as a post doc at the Dept of Biomedicine at UiB. My areas of expertise are cell biology, angiogenesis and tissue engineering. I also supervised (Msc) students and technical personnell.

I am currently enrolled in an MBA program for higher education management (120 credit points) at the University of Oldenburg (Germany) besides my job  to increase my knowledge and understanding of higher education administration.

So far I studied higher education marketing, conflict management, budgeting and financing, organisational theory and leadership, finance management and investment, higher education law, politics and economy, project management, research management and controlling. I also completed courses on e-learning and strategic management and gained insight in HR with a course in Diversity Management. My master thesis will be in the area of research management.

I participated in the ESMU-Humane winter school for senior university administrators in 2012 as the only Norwegian participant.


In 2009/2010 I helped to organise the first UiB training program for young research leaders.

In 2011 I organised a 2 day course on acquisition of external funding for UiBs Faculty of Medicine and Dentristry and was involved in planning similar programs at the other faculties.

In 2011 and 2012 I organised the track for research management at UiBs international staff week.
