Dorri te Boekhorst


Studied Biology in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Over the past fifteen years she conducted various projects covering integrated water management, sustainable development and higher education.

She has been coordinating higher education programmes in Biology at the University of Nijmegen and has managed the financial and administrative side of European scientific cooperation projects (EFDR, FP7, H2020 Interreg).

She combines an analytical helicopter view with a pragmatic hands-on mentality and has been organizing a wide variety of events and workshops and likes moderating groups at such events. 

From 2015 she is contributing to strategic projects managed by the section ‘Joint Programming and ERA-NETs’. One of their main tasks is supporting the FACCE-JPI Governing Board (the Joint Programming initiative on Agriculture, Climate Change and Food Security) and the activities rising from the FACCE Implementation Plan. The Netherlands is an active partner in the Secretariat and interaction with the national context. Focal points from the Ministry of Economic Affairs are alignment, valorisation and impact.

The second major activity of Dorri is carrying out a study on representation and inclusion of countries in the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research. A desk study in combination with interviews has led to a concept paper. The final paper will be presented at the Talinn conference in December 2017.
