Associate Senior Advisor
Ida is a trained diplomat and by nature a bridge-builder who brings different disciplines together. She is focused on creating societal impact, innovations, and entrepreneurship. She has extensive experience in building ecosystems which create win-wins to all parties involved be it public, private, NGO and/or research institutions: the quadruple helix. Her expertise on international legal and economic issues gives a solid basis to that.
Before she became an associate senior advisor at IvCB, she was responsible for the further development of different international, national, and regional partnerships on, a.o. innovations in the field of (cyber) security, digital energy transition as well as Pharma/Bioscience. In her most recent role she was the managing director of the Leiden Bio Science Park.
Ida studied at the University of Applied Sciences Banbury (UK) as well as at the University of Utrecht where she took a master in International law.
Ecosystems enhance the ability to work together and lead to successes. I am happy to help set up and build those ecosystems and by doing so to provide building blocks for the future for any organisation.
