Academic biography

Sophie Ball joined DCU's Research and Innovation Support teams (RIS) in April 2021 as the University's Erasmus+ Development  Officer. She develops and monitors the University’s portfolio of Erasmus+ projects (excluding those that focus solely on individual staff or student mobility). In particular, she is responsible for raising the profile of the Erasmus+ programme in the University with researchers and academics, and effectively assisting applications to projects under Key Action 2 and the Jean Monnet activities as well as providing assistance to the ECIU University initiative.

She came to DCU from Middlesex University London where she was institutional lead for the University's student exchange and Erasmus programmes.
