Sylvia Burssens

I am EU-Account Manager for Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources at the Research Coordination Office, and will guide you to make a successful Horizon Europe project proposal.

As a previous researcher (PhD Plant Biotechnology; UGent, 1999), Executive Director (15 y) at the International Plant Biotech Outreach (IPBO), and coordinator of Agrolink Flanders (5y), I developed solid expertise in science policy, and EU funded projects. During the last years I was part of the coordinating team of  the EURAKNOS and EUREKA H2020 projects.  I am  member of EURAGRI Board, member of the SCAR-AKIS SWG and act as an expert for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), following the latest trends and developments in the field.
