With 25 years of experience, AquaTT has proven itself as an expert at managing European projects, with a strategic focus on knowledge management and transfer, dissemination and training. AquaTT operates extensively within the European scientific research arena and has demonstrated a track record in successfully pursuing, acquiring and managing a significant number of grants (across the FP7, H2020, Interreg and Lifelong Learning Programmes), enabling it to build a knowledge-based organisation with key networks among national and European stakeholders in the marine and other sectors.


The Project Officer (PO) will join our existing team and contribute to the management and administration of AquaTT’s current and future portfolio of projects, and will be primarily responsible for 2-3 European projects, ensuring them to become a success for both AquaTT and our partnerships. AquaTT’s roles in projects typically fall under the umbrella of knowledge management activities including dissemination, communication, education, stakeholder engagement and knowledge management and transfer. Given the international dimension of the projects, regular travel will be required.


AquaTT is looking for a pro-active, diligent and dedicated individual, who must have suitable skills to carry out the duties described above as well as strong soft skills such as excellent communication and networking, stakeholder engagement, time management and task prioritisation, and be able to work to tight deadlines. The project officer would ideally have a creative streak, and enjoy determining alternative methods and channels for carrying out their activities including communication of scientific results to different stakeholder groups.
