EU projects – Technology Scouting – Business Innovation


In September, our AMIRES family welcomed Olja Kristic, who joined us as a Project Manager in Energy & Sustainability programme.

Olja obtained a Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Novi Sad in Serbia in 2012. Then, she continued working in the bioenergy sector in Serbia, Hungary and Germany – that is how she gained experience in research and international projects, market development and renewable bioenergy technologies.

Before joining us, Olja worked as a Project Manager in the European Commission in Brussels. The five years she spent there allowed her to learn a lot about the EU R&D funding framework, especially the Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe Programmes, procedures and policies.

In AMIRES, Olja is managing Horizon Europe projects ECOTRON (How to minimize the ecological footprint for functional electronics?) and InVECOF (Innovative Value Chains for European Ceramic Oxide Fibres). She is also involved in proposals in Energy & Sustainability Programme.
In her free time, Olja likes to take long walks or go hiking. She is also very passionate about food and likes to explore new recipes and different cuisines.

We are happy to have Olja on board and we wish her the best of luck!
