After a PhD in Physics with a specialization in materials science, I worked for a few years in international groups (AGC, EDF). Then, I joined InnovaTech where I was in charge of the management of technological innovation and the setting up of innovation projects within Walloon SMEs. Finally, for almost 3 years, I have been working for the Skywin competitiveness cluster active in aeronautics, space, defense, and drones where I am in charge of the implementation of collaborative innovation projects and the follow-up of the regional project WINGS (Wallon Innovations for Green Sky) which for more than 3 years has enabled the Walloon aeronautical industries to pursue their research efforts to preserve or improve their positioning about the competition, and thus to participate in the achievement of the ambitious objective of decarbonization of aeronautics.
