Milan, 31 July 2019 - Four new Human Technopole managers leading key company areas (procurement, legal affairs, finance and human resources) will be operational starting from tomorrow, 1 August. The new heads of section will complete the team already at work. The four managers were chosen among the hundred of applications received for their strong profiles and proven track record, and are ready to put their experience to the service of the ambitious project at the heart of MIND - Milano Innovation District.
Paola Moscatelli had been leading the Procurement team since May 2019 following many years of experience at Trenord, a heavily structured company where she was able to make a first hand contribution, streamlining a number of purchasing processes. On 25 July, lawyer Andrea Callea took over as Head of Legal Affairs, after a long experience as in house counsel and freelance activity, including offering legal assistance to multidisciplinary research centres at national level. Starting from 1 August, the team will be completed by Giovanni Selmi, Head of Finance, with previous experience in various industrial sectors as Chief Financial Officer and Finance Director, and Giulia Bellet, covering HR roles in multinational companies operating in the agribusiness and pharmaceutical sector since 1999, who will serve as Human Technopole's Head of Human Resources, responsible for the management and organisational development.
2019 has been a year of consistent and ongoing growth for Human Technopole, the large research infrastructure for life sciences. In January, Iain Mattaj - internationally renowned Scottish biologist - took office as the first HT director. The first managers responsible for President's office, Scientific & Strategic Affairs and Operations shortly followed.
And it's not over yet. The call for an ICT manager has just closed, while there is still time - until 10 August - to apply for the position of Laboratory Designer, a role that will be involved in the design of laboratories fit for researchers' needs.
More positions will be advertised in the coming months. All roles require fluent English (Human Technopole's working language), enthusiasm and the desire to contribute to the new center of excellence for scientific research in Italy.
