MEET OUR TEAM: Jaroslava Kašparová
We are very happy to welcome Jaroslava, who joined AMIRES and Energy & Sustainability team in October 2022. Jarka graduated from University of Economics in Prague with her studies focused on International Trade, European Integration and Anglo-American studies.
She gained her expertise in a public sector working for the Ministry of Industry and Trade: being responsible for OECD and EU research and development policies – fighting for national interests in this field. Furthermore, she actively worked on creation and development of frameworks and rules of EU funds (OPPIK – Operational programme for entrepreneurship, innovation and competitiveness) and National aid programme TRIO which was created to support projects especially in KETs and to enhance cooperation between research organisations and private companies. After five years’ experience in the area of Research, development and innovation she dedicated her further career to trade diplomacy and she gained experience at a position of trade officer for bilateral trade relations between the Czech Republic and China, Taiwan.
She loves to spend her days at the sea anywhere in the world. With respect to the fact that staying at the sea is not always possible – she loves to run away from Prague for weekends in nature. Besides of running away from the city life, she invests her time in her family and close friends, plays guitar, and loves to move her body. She doesn’t like complainers and all the injustice of the world. Ah – and Alain Delon is the only man in the world she would be willing to iron shirts for.
In AMIRES Jaroslava acts as a Project Manager in Horizon Europe SuPerTandem projects (sustainable materials for development of highly efficient all-perovskite photovoltaic modules) and Convert2Green (climate neutral materials in innovative products).
