Esther De Smet

Senior Research Policy Advisor, Ghent University

Esther De Smet is a Senior Research Policy Advisor at Ghent University with a penchant for knowledge management and communication. She is one of the project leads on the institutional research information system (GISMO) and has recently spearheaded the new policy on societal value creation. But her true calling is creating a stimulating and nurturing research environment at Ghent and putting her university’s research on the local and global map. Esther invests a lot of time and energy into her personal network of researchers and other partners in research communication and developing her own skills. She leads workshops on communication strategy, impact, digital presence and social media. Twitter is her medium of choice: she is the proud curator of @ResearchUGent since 2012 making her a frontrunner in harnessing social media in Flemish research communication.
