In December 2010, upon resignation of the CEO, she was asked to become Interim CEO and in April 2011 was appointed to the substantive post of CEO. Since December 2010, she has overseen a major simplification project for Climate-KIC, including the development of a new, more appropriate, legal entity and the addition of many new members to create the vibrant Climate-KIC community.
