City of Genk – EU funding & strategy advisor

Since 2020 I am assisting the city of Genk (Belgium) in the creation of their EU funding strategy. The work encompasses the a large scale of activities, including 1) the formulation of new project ideas under programmes such as Creative Europe, LIFE & Horizon Europe, 2) training-sessions and workshops for public officers on EU funding opportunities and grant writing. Together with Euquest, we also work on the building of networks and potential partnerships for the city of Genk on an international (European) scale.

The work focuses on themes such as climate change mitigation, culture & heritage, social inclusion of minority groups in the city and the improvement of local economic functionalities.
