In 2003 she carried out an internship at the European Space Agency – ESA (Public and Institutional relations office). She joined CORILA in 2006, working mainly in the field of marine and coastal policies, sustainable development policies and disaster risk reduction strategies. She is involved in European projects such as ADRIPLAN (DG MARE), Technical and administrative support for the joint implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive by the Mediterranean European Member States (DG ENV), OURCOAST (DG ENV), KULTURISK (FP7), ObservAirYourbusiness (CIP) and Networks (NEREUS, UNISDR Campaign “Making cities resilient”). Her role is related mainly to stakeholder involvement procedure and analysis, policies’ review, dissemination of outcomes to decision makers.
The ADRIPLAN project will provide detailed recommendations for the evaluation of cross-border MSP based on an integrated overall assessment and taking into account multiple demands and potentials.
The ADRIPLAN project is implemented by 17 Partners from 4 countries of the Adriatic - Ionian Macroregion, from which 8 are the Scientific Partners and 9 the Institutional Partners (inner circle). 17 Observers (outer circle) are also contributing to the project.
The proposed approach will be based on the best knowledge available, will be developed with the support of Institutional partners and observers and the involvement of all main stakeholders.
The main challenge for ADRΙPLAN in implementing MSP in the area will be to overcome barriers of full participation of all neighboring countries in the process and promote sound technically/scientifically based political decisions.
The scientific community of the project had been given the mandate to deliver a commonly - agreed approach for providing detailed proposals and recommendations for the implementation of cross border MSP in the focus areas.
ADRIPLAN promotes the harmonized implementation under an ecosystem based approach of the EU legislative framework on marine and maritime issues, including the ICZM protocol for the Mediterranean, and the new Directive proposal on ICZM – MSP, as well as the EUSAIR Action Plan
