Karin Horsman PhD

Senior policy advisor Business Innovation at Wageningen UR

After my MSc and PhD in Plant Breeding, during which I was chairman of the PhD council of the graduate school Experimental Plant Sciences (EPS), I changed my career towards policy advisory. Subsequently I held positions in the headquarters of Wageningen University and the graduate school EPS focussing on research quality and PhD policy.

In 2010 I returned to Wageningen UR headquarters as senior policy advisor business innovation and knowledge valorisation. Futhermore, I am member (fractievoorzitter) of the city council in Wageningen for the Dutch Labour Party (since March 2010).
