Judith Freita-Ramos is the Detector Systems Deputy Work Package Manager at ESS. With the group internal split during 2016, Judith was offered to lead the Detector Systems Services Section, including the group engineers, technicians and admin personnel.

Her role also includes liaising with partners and In-Kind collaborators.

Previous to her positions at ESS, she led research groups of up to 24 members in several study fields. She is familiar with the Horizon 2020 call regulations and requirements, as she was previously with the FP6 and FP7 calls.

Most recently she was responsible for various European projects at the University of Vigo (UVigo, Spain), including the IMMUNONET network, funded by the STC SUDOE, and the FP7 HINAMOX project. Judith has also participated in writing the FP7 REGPOT BIOCAPS proposal.
