About Me

I help companies securing funding to accelerate time to market of innovative products. Particularly under the H2020 SME Instruments program, I work with European SMEs and Start-ups in translating their disruptive ideas and technologies into innovative products that respond to concrete market needs. And in preparing successful proposals by providing professional proposal writing services, including the development of preliminary go-to-market strategy, business model and business plan.

Previously, I have been a research scientist for more than 10 years. During this time, I had the opportunity to learn and teach Chemistry at the highest level and in three different countries (Portugal, Spain & France). I have managed my own research projects, I have mentored and trained young researchers, I have established and nourished collaborations with other research groups, I have taught and, most importantly, I have traveled and adapted to multicultural environments and multidisciplinary teams more than once.
