Michela Bertero

An unexpected turn from the laboratory research to management

During this presentation I will share with the audience my career experiences in science. In particular, I will illustrate how last year I decided to leave the experimental scientific work in the laboratory to undertake an "alternative" job in European project management, being at the interface between the labs and the European Commission. After almost a year as a scientific project manager, I can now describe my first fresh impressions, illustrate the daily challenges, the advantages and disadvantages and give maybe inspiration of an attractive alternative career for scientists.
