Alessandra Gallerano

This is a job-share with Andries Verspeeten.

My name is Alessandra Gallerano and I am Head of Projects and Partnerships at the University of Padua, Italy. I am responsible for coordinating the university's participation in cooperative projects funded under Erasmus+, joint programmes and international partnerships. As of January, I am also part of the steering committee of the newly established European University Alliance ARQUS, coordinated by the University of Granada. In recent years, I have worked intensively on European and joint programmes from different perspectives: first as an Erasmus Mundus student and alumna, serving as President of the Erasmus Mundus Association’s European Chapter; then as an International Project Manager at large-scale Italian public universities; and finally as a trainer at international workshops, including for the EAIE, and as Chair of the EAIE Joint Programmes network from 2017 to 2018. I believe that this professional and academic background, combined with my solid interest in policy discussion and developments in the field of global international education, can be an asset for the European Collaborative Programmes Expert Community.
