Description of job and tasks involved

My previous experience in European projects management during more than seven years working in different entities (public and private) has provided me a deep view of the different panoramas for boosting participation in international projects. Moreover my education background in Legal, European Law and Economics and Innovation aspects have increased my knowledge about European institutions and R&D policies.  Nowadays I am part of the European Projects Office team of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) working with administrative, legal and financial aspects of European R&D projects of UPM. Personally, I conduct the generation of international R&D&I projects, stimulating the emergence of project ideas and promotion of the UPM's R&D Institutes and Centers participation. I manage the administrative and financial reporting of international projects (cost claims, audits, etc.) and the negotiation process of consortium agreements and IPR issues.
