Edurne is the Project Manager of the Innovative Polymers and Catalysis and Sustainable Polymers groups at POLYMAT. She coordinates activities in the framework of EU-funded actions accros their entire project life cycle: writing, negotiation, execution and reporting. She also creates scientific content materials for communication and dissemination purposes, as well as organising training activities for the groups' networks.


Edurne´s background education was in Chemistry and Food Technology. She earned her BSc from the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU, Spain) in 2005, and her PhD from Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT, Ireland) in 2010. She then moved to the private sector, where she spent 8 years securing private and public (FP7, H2020) funding and executing projects to improve the agrifood value chain. Eager to develop new interpersonal and professional skills, in 2015 she pursued a master´s in Science Communication from Pompeu Fabra University (UPF, Spain). Ever since, she has been at positions that allow her to converge two interests: project management and science communication.
