Graduated in Biochemistry at the University of Ghent about 20 years ago and have been working in the Life Sciences Industry ever since. My professional parcours involves product marketing (Product Manager), Marketing (Marketing Manager), Sales Management (Senior Sales Manager) and Business Development (Business Development Director). Established an International expertise in the domain of cluster development and Tech transfer operations all over Europe with my own company ADVICE ID. Thanks to being an expert in cross country collaboration and start up creation and development and having a large cluster network I have grown an interest in cluster collaboration and cross domain development. M&A and collaborative contract negotiations and the development of new collaborative ways of working cross boarder and cross - domain are the areas of my interest.
