My job

Ulf, Research and Technology Outreach

I'm a scientist by education and a networker by conviction. Before joining NATO I spent almost ten years at a national aeronautics research laboratory. In my current position I work between science and technology and the armaments community, to promote and foster the strategic level of collaboration between those conducting scientific research and those applying the results.

My portfolio involves a broad variety of stakeholders, including national experts and NATO staff, ranging from military (driving capability requirements) to technology experts (driven by technology opportunities). In this challenging and stimulating environment, I play multiple roles as pathfinder, motivator, custodian, facilitator, or multiplier, always focused on supporting the nations in meeting their objectives as an Alliance.
