Founded in 2000, Eurice - European Research and Project Office GmbH - provides comprehensive support services for the planning, initiation, and implementation of large international collaborative research projects. EURICE has been involved in EU-Framework Programmes since FP4 and has been supporting researchers in more than 250 EU funded projects including 30 Horizon 2020 projects to date. Today, EURICE is among Germany’s largest project management offices, with a dedicated team of more than 40 staff members with different professional and scientific expertise, such as law, social sciences, medicine, biology, chemistry, communications, or computer sciences.
In addition to classical project management, Eurice helps to develop and implement coherent IP strategies and supports consortia through dissemination, networking, training, and capacity building activities. Thus, Eurice accompanies researchers and innovative companies through the entire life cycle of a project – from the first idea to successful project completion – and beyond.
Within the OpenSuperQ project, Eurice supports the coordinator in all aspects of project management, including administrative, legal and financial matters, to ensure a smooth project implementation. The Eurice team will also ensure coherent external communication of the project and its results towards relevant target groups. Eurice additionally supports innovation-related activities such as dissemination and exploitation of results to maximise the impact of the project.
Since joining Eurice as a Research & Innovation Manager in 2000, Corinna Hahn has built up a long track record of successful project proposals. Having started as a translator and FP4 project manager at the Leibniz Institute for New Materials (INM) Saarbrücken, her experience ranges from national funding schemes e.g. by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to the current EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020.
Corinna is an expert in the field of nanotechnology with a strong personal interest in interdisciplinary research initiatives at the interface between medicine, nanotechnology and ICT. Her skill set includes strategic project planning and management of international research alliances, proposal writing and negotiation with particular expertise in engineering projects and ERC consultancy. Additionally, Corinna provides training sessions and workshops on knowledge transfer and innovation management.
Dr Patricia Alveen holds a degree in mechanical engineering from University College Dublin, Ireland, and she decided to explore her interest in materials science by carrying out a PhD on mechanics of materials. Upon completion of her PhD, she spent a number of years in Austria and Liechtenstein, where she worked in industry as a technical project manager, focussing on materials research. During this time, she led many collaborative research projects together with external partners.
At Eurice, she uses her technical knowledge and project management experience to professionally support different European research consortia in the planning and implementation of projects.
