Maria Coelho is B2E’s new Executive Coordinator

With a strong multidisciplinary profile in Innovation Management and extensive international experience, Maria Coelho has been with B2E since its inception, and is the new Executive Coordinator of the CoLAB, assuming the role from February 1, 2023.

“It is with an enormous sense of responsibility that I accept this challenge. I am confident that, together with the B2E team, we will work in an ambitious and results-oriented manner with both the scientific and business communities in a collaborative way, never losing sight of a profound philosophy of service to society”, says the new Coordinator.

In her path, Maria Coelho has crossed the gap from academia to the business dimension gathering experience across an eclectic array of fields such as R&D, consultancy, innovation management, HR coordination, strategic planning, client management and project development in various fields of knowledge.

For B2E’s Board of Directors, this shift marks a new phase in the progress of B2E.

“This is a new cycle that begins, with new leadership and new challenges. We are convinced that B2E will continue to provide differentiated and added value to the blue bioeconomy sector, fulfilling its purpose of bringing academia and the market closer together. To Maria Coelho, I can only reinforce our vote of trust, in the expectation of great success moving forward. Finally, a public acknowledgment to Elisabete Matos who led B2E so well, and our wishes for much success in her new professional phase”, notes the President of the Board and Director of R&D and Incentives at MC Marlos Silva.

Elisabete Matos, who has performed the duties of Technical-Scientific Coordinator for the last three years, will take on a new professional opportunity linked to teaching, and will keep collaborating with B2E within the scope of funded projects already approved.

B2E has a highly motivated and qualified team with experience in several areas of the blue bioeconomy, as well as experience in innovation, management, knowledge exchange processes, market, project management, communication and event dissemination, among others. Meet our team here.
