Key staff involved in the project
Bianca Lenhard is a project manager at ARTTIC. She obtained her university degree in English and Geography from the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, where she also worked as a research assistant at two different chairs, including Germany’s highest ranked chair for English didactics. Upon graduating she gained her first experience as a project manager in an IT Start-up after which she went on to work as a project manager for EU-funded research projects. Through her work supporting FP7 projects as well as H2020 proposals, she has years of experience managing research projects. With her experience as well as her knowledge of intercultural communication, she brings into the projects not only profound knowledge of all involved processes and instruments but also the expertise to manage cross-cultural communication.
Sara Skogsater, Senior Consultant, joined ARTTIC in January 2005. In particular, she has worked on proposals and projects within the theme Health and Life sciences in different research areas such as RNAi, toxicology, stem cells, iPSCs, drug development, infectious diseases, oncology, neurodegenerative diseases and neural injury.
Sara advises and manages all aspects related to the building and management of a collaborative project, such as the collaborative design, the proposal writing, the budget setup, the operational, financial and contractual follow-up once the project started, the consortium management and the communication and reporting towards the European Commission. The quality of her work has been recognised notably by the ESNATS (FP7) consortium who officially acknowledges her excellent coordination capabilities in one of their scientific publications.
Sara holds a Master of Science in International Business from the Gothenburg School of Economics and Commerical Law, Sweden.
