I work for ETIFOR srl in Padua on a number of projects. My role in these projects is research-based and includes; innovation and business assessments; market (business and university) and needs analyses; training course development (e-learning courses); drafting reports; reviewing reports; website material reviews and reviewing all English material produced by the company.
