Food consumption and catering applied to cancerology

My mission consists in coordinating the scientific and medical teams at the Institut de Cancérologie de l’Ouest (ICO), the Science and Innovation teams at the Institut Paul Bocuse Research Center (IPBR) and the R&D teams at Elior in order to develop new research projects in food consumption and catering applied to cancerology.
I will most particularly:
  • coordinate the implementation and formalization of the tripartite agreement,
  • co-define the research project contents together with scientific and industry partners as well as with local authorities (among others)
  • lead the search for funding and for new project partners.
