I am currently working as Horizon 2020 Project Expert in HPD Danışmanlık, İzmir, Turkey. I have been involved in many framework programme projects since FP6. I was in the management teams of LOWJUICE (FP6-2004-SME-COLL) and BARLEYBREAD (FP6-2004-SME-COLL) projects as one of the representatives of TROYKA Ltd. The firm was also one of the core partners in the BLACKSEAFOOD Consortium (FP7 KBBE-2008-2-2-02: Bioactive Compounds in Traditional Food Products - SICA (Black Sea Region), not funded with score 12.5 out of 15) and I perfomred all the technical/scientific and administrative tasks on behalf of TROYKA in the course of project application. In TUBITAK Marmara Research Center Food Institute, I worked as Contact Point for FP7 projects and managed many partnership events between the institute and domestic and foreign companies/research centers. I facilitated the participation of TUBITAK MRC FI to APIFRESH (FP7-SME-2008-2) and conducted all the administrative work including consortium agreement till the start of the Project. Lately, I was involved in the Project management team of H2Biyotek Ltd., who participated in the ERA-IB projects POAP and FILAZYME.
