Mgr. Tereza McLaughlin Váňová
Research Projects Coordinator
As a project coordinator I enjoy the variety of work and ideas. I am responsible for coordinating the ‘EEB-CZ Platform' project, which aims to increase the international profile of the Czech research in the field of energy-efficient construction For members of the Platform I seek out opportunities for international cooperation, help them prepare project applications and ensure the development of non-scientific skills in the context of specialized training. In cooperation with external experts I draft strategic documents aspiring to promote national interests at European level. I am responsible for organizing an international conference in 2017, which we co-host in cooperation with the Faculty of Transportation at the Czech Technical University in Prague.
I graduated from West European Studies at the Faculty of Social Sciences. I spent a year at the Centre for Clean Technology and Environment (CSTM) at the Universiteit Twente in the Netherlands. After moving to Scotland I worked at the University of Strathclyde, most recently as a project coordinator at the Centre for Looked After Children in Scotland (CELCIS) funded by the Scottish Government. We used PRINCE2® project methodology and MSP®; in April 2013, I received a certificate PRINCE2®.
