I am a professional with 10+ years’ experience – four of them in technical assistance and evaluation of European funds. My particular expertise relates to Rural Development programmes. I conducted an in-depth analysis of the LEADER approach, agri-environmental measures, and integrated supply chain projects. I also worked as a consultant on strategic planning and carried out project management activities in the context of integrated territorial development projects financed by the EU.
Prior to my professional career, I obtained two master’s degrees: in Economics and Management and in Sustainable Development and Territory Management – both from the University of Pisa. I carried out research focussed on the evaluation of socio-economic and environmental impacts, and on social reporting at the Department of Economic Sciences and at the Department of Statistics and Applied Mathematics,
I am currently employed at the Department of Agriculture, Food and Environment of the University of Pisa. My role here includes planning, managing and reporting on finances in Horizon 2020 projects.
