A very warm welcome to Katerina Kring who joined the team at the beginning of this year.
New she might be, but a stranger she is not. Katerina previously worked for the IIIB North Sea Region Programme between 2002 and 2006 as Project Advisor after graduating from Lund University in Sweden with a master's degree in Environmental Management and Policy. In 2006 she moved on to work with Interact (also located in Viborg) where she worked in several positions and eventually became the Coordinator of Interact Point Viborg in 2016.
So welcome back Katerina! I guess you know my first question. What drew you back to the North Sea after such a long time?
Smiling broadly, Katerina explains, "since the programme was my first official workplace after finishing university, it holds a special place in my heart. Returning to the programme again feels like coming home. The principles and value of cooperation were first introduced to me in the programme, and these have stuck throughout every step of my career".
How does it feel being back?
It feels fantastic. Working in a team of driven, enthusiastic professionals who are extremely encouraging makes the job even more exciting. Working with colleagues in this way brings me back to my earlier days as a project advisor. There is room for everyone within the team and there is always scope to develop your own skills as well as contribute towards those of the other team members.
