Background & Achievements Foto - J. Rammer

A theoretical physicist by training, I started my career in academic research working at universities in Austria, Germany and Canada. After returning to Austria in the early nineties, I joined the telecommunications industry (Siemens Austria), where I held various technical expert, consultancy, project management and R&D leadership positions.  

I am currently an independent ICT and Management Consultant, accredited by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (Wirtschaftskammer). Apart from supporting innovative companies in their research funding needs, I am a frequent participant in evaluation activities of research proposals at the European level.
