At the European Lab of Innovative Purchasing and Supply (EL-IPS) of the University of Twente, I am responsible, together with Esmee Peters, for daily management. We supervise projects, support project applications and organise several meetings and events. The other 50% of my time, I focus on competencies and soft skills research in purchasing and supply management research and education. I coordinate the MSc course Purchasing Management in the Industrial Engineering and Management track.
