A firm believer in open innovation and transnational cooperation, Grace is Head of our EU Projects. She brings strategic direction to our team by building and maintaining powerful EU connections and originating game changing projects. Her passion projects are those which create impact on rural economies and communities (RESTART+ Communities), foster inclusion (INACT inclusive educators), embrace next generation digital technology (INSITES to Digital Cultural Heritage) and challenge business owners to think differently (OUTPACE Opportunities in Pop Culture Tourism).

Grace has over 10 years’ experience working on EU projects, and has a strong academic background with a BA in New Media and English and continuing professional development in the realms of education, communications and marketing.

Grace lives on a dairy farm in rural South East Galway with her husband Raymond, and their son Paddy. She affectionately calls the milking parlour on the farm her ‘Think Tank’ as she some of her best ideas have come to her there. She is also a part time entrepreneur.
