  • Grant / Opportunity management: Contribute to the management of the successful projects, ensuring effective project management and reporting to funding bodies
  • Opportunity identification: Explore and identify funding opportunities both nationally and internationally, from government agencies, prizes, charities, foundations, and other funding bodies. Build relationships and contacts at key funding bodies to understand their priorities and upcoming opportunities
