As community engagement officer at LIBER, Martine is responsible for engagement related activities and dissemination of several EU projects, including the OpenMinTeD project on text and data mining, the FOSTER Plus project on training for open science and the AARC project on federated authentication and authorization.
Before joining LIBER in 2016, she worked as communication advisor at Leiden University Medical Center and the Faculty of Science of Leiden University. She is also a member of the core team of ScienceOnline Leiden, an open community that experiments with new ways of communicating science.
Martine has a background in biology (MSc from Wageningen University) and communication. She is experienced in community engagement, science communication and strategic communications of scientific and scholarly consortia, organisations and higher education. Within the LIBER team, she’s known as LIBER’s ‘Scientist in Residence’.
I care about improving science and research libraries have a vital role in this. LIBER empowers and supports research libraries to take this role and I find it very rewarding to contribute to this myself.
