Vasso studied at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the Athens University of Economics and Business. She holds a BSc in Political Science & Public Administration, a Certificate of specialised training in Cultural Units Management and an Executive MSc in European Studies.
She works as an EU Projects Communications Officer and is responsible for various project-related events and activities, which have been assigned to LIBER in the context of EU funded projects and especially the European Open Science Cloud Pilot Project and EUDAT, playing a key role in the promotion of these projects to people in the target communities. Having an extensive experience with EU Projects and a thorough knowledge of the EU projects’ lifecycle and the communication and dissemination approaches to be followed, as well as project management and quality assessment tools, policies and procedures, she also supports the project management process.
Her professional interests lay in the alignment and promotion of Open Access policies, Open Science and the engagement of relevant communities, to make scientific research and data accessible to all levels of society. She believes that Open Science is the key to improving the transparency and validity of research, and the best way to communicate scientific knowledge. She also cares about growth, business and innovation management, political science and open government policies.
Vasso originally comes from Greece and lives in the Netherlands.
LIBER is important to me because of the opportunity it gives us to develop professionally by facing new challenges in a fruitful way, as well as by being members of a high level professional team.
