Jean-Jacques Bernardini

Head of Department - European Innovation Fundings Programs

I have more than 27 years of experience in the field of innovation management. As a business development manager, consultant or European affairs manager, I have developed skills in the field of innovation management as well as funding and management of collaborative international research and innovation programs. It gave me the opportunity to work with companies (from startups to large companies ) and laboratories on very different topics as transport, energy, environment, biotechnologies, materials and factory of the future.
I'm a member of several European networks as the EEN network and the National contact point for European program H2020.
I'm a member of the selection committee of the regional incubator and president and external referee of the regional jury of the French I-lab prize.

I set up and I coordinate for 9 years the regional European affairs network Réseau Europe Recherche.
