On 31 of March is my last day as an employee of Salzburg Research and I had already my last day as coordinator of the H2020 Initiative 2020 DOIT.
For 13,5 years I worked for Salzburg Research in various projects and positions – as project manager and/or key / senior researcher. I am grateful for this time – I was able to contribute to and shape various challenging research topics over many years – from social media and online communities to makerspaces and open eduational resources. And it was also uncomplicated with three children in my own household – thanks to part-time work and home office arrangements. An academic career at a university with children would probably be unthinkable – thank you, Salzburg Research! A warm goodbye to my dear colleagues – I am sure we will meet again in the future 🙂
Leaving an H2020 project as coordinator 6 months before completion is a challenge for the remaining project management. But the great team will surely succeed. I will think of you – especially on October 21st! Bring the project to a great end!
A change after such a long time is well thought out and I am looking forward to announce in next week where I will be involved in the future – with much enthusiasm and (pre-)joy!
