Managing the team responsible for the Knowledge Co-Creation process, including funding opportunities mapping, project acquisition, building consortia, and support for proposals writing).

Managing, preparing, and implementing ambitious research projects (EU Horizon).

Supporting ŁRN Institutes in the process of applying for European and international proposals, together with foreign and domestic Research Centres and Universities.

Streamlining research services.

Krzysztof Mieszkowski Area Leader of Knowledge Co-creation in Centre for Foresight and Internationalisation
He has knowledge on RDI ecosystems and experience in grants’ acquisition for RDI projects from different source of funding. He used to work for the Polish ministry responsible for science and higher education, Joint Research Centre (Seville site) and Warsaw University of Technology. His key role is to lead the team responsible for setting up consortia to work on proposals for collaborative projects at EU level.
