Senior R&D&I Consultant, Zabala Innovation Europe
I joined Zabala Innovation Consulting in September 2019 with the main task to manage INTENSYS4EU project and ETIP SNET. I worked at RINA Consulting directly involved in the management of H2020 project and JU Shift2Rail (mainly in Transport and Energy fields). I was also in charge with business development and in activities involving support RINA Consultancy policy activities through the participation in European Industry Associations. I worked for Clerens Consulting and for EASE - The European Association for Storage of Energy from May 2015 to November 2017 as Project Officer. In my career, I already acquired 7 years of experience in EU projects in several fields and a sound experience in legal field thanks to working in law firms in Italy and Ireland. Over these last 7 years in Brussels I obtained a good knowledge in the Public Affairs and Consultancy sector, mostly focused on European funding opportunities, both in calls for proposals and calls for tenders. I started to work on European funding opportunities at BXL Europe asbl and at European Projects Association asbl where I had the chance to implement lobbying and campaign activities regarding European projects drafting and project management in general, especially for projects in education fields and providing support to consultant and management team. My skills in European project Management also improved when working as EU Funds Advisor in Arietti & Partners managing their office in Brussels. I provided consulting services to clients in order to help them get European Funds, to identify the most suitable Horizon 2020 programmes and calls, to build up a strong consortium, and to support them in writing of the proposal and submit it. I also got experience in creating contacts with the Policy Officers of the European Commission responsible for the interesting topics for the call and the clients. Some of the main topics and programmes were SME Instruments with several topics, LIFE+, COSME, FET, FTI etc
