To celebrate International Day of Women and Girls in Science, the BIMprove project wants to give voice to the women that are implementing the project through a series of video and written interviews that we will be sharing during this month. 

The promotion of gender equality and the integration of the gender dimension in Research and innovation are at the core of the European Union  – as underlined by the European Commission in its Communication “A new ERA for Research and Innovation”. 

Today, we are sharing a video interview done with Caroline Cheng, Research Scientist at SINTEF Community, one of 6 Institutes in the Research Foundation SINTEF, and coordinating entity in the BIMprove project.

Prior to research, Caroline Cheng has had twelve years’ managerial experience both in Singapore and Hong Kong, with exposure in business development, product management, marketing and branding.

Her educational background includes a BBA (Honors), with double majors in Banking and International Business from University of Wisconsin-Madison, U.S.A. and a MSc in Industrial Ecology specializing in Environmental Management from NTNU, Norway. She obtained her PhD degree at the Department of Industrial Economics and Technology Management at NTNU building on her interest in understanding how strategy tools are used in practice, from an inter-organizational perspective.

Currently domiciled in Trondheim, Norway, her research interests are in sustainable buildings and neighborhoods, particularly in the context of facilitating business collaboration and innovation.

Caroline is trilingual in English, Mandarin (including Cantonese) and Norwegian.

We invite you to like and share her video!
