With 18 years' experience working in ERNACT as Programme Manager, Caitriona brings a wealth of knowledge and a track record of exceptional leadership to our network. Caitriona is an expert in European transnational, interregional and cross-border management of digital transformation projects and European Cooperation programmes, with specialisms in digital technology, energy policy, and transnational knowledge transfer.

Our new General Manager expressed her excitement about the new role, saying,
"I am honoured and delighted to take up the role of General Manager. I look forward to working closely with all our EU member regions and partners, and Atlantic Canada, to advance the many exciting digital transformation opportunities that lie ahead".

She has plenty of experience working with local and regional authorities, 3rd level organisations, and the various EU institutions, bodies and agencies. I have no fear that ERNACT is in good hands”, stated Colm Mc Colgan, outgoing ERNACT General Manager.

Please join us in extending a warm welcome to Caitriona! We are eager to embark on this new chapter under her leadership and we are confident that together, we will achieve remarkable success!
