Vasso Kalaitzi

Head of International Projects, LIBER

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.

Within LIBER, she is Head of International Projects – overseeing LIBER’s entire project portfolio. This means both being involved in the daily running of projects and identifying new project opportunities for LIBER and our network of libraries. She is actively involved in a number of LIBER Working Group: Open Access, Citizen Science and Digital Skills.

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.

LIBER is a pioneer in Enabling World Class Research. I respect and deeply care about its vision and activities. I value the way LIBER works on a daily basis in order to strengthen the voice of research libraries and in providing important input in several key areas. I admire LIBER’s ethos and practices and I am especially proud of being part of this hard-working, creative, passionate and very professional team!
