Our team

Irina Mikhailava

Head of L&D

I believe that humans are inherently curious and love to learn, and in my work I help to encourage and grow this infinite resource. With my work I aim to create a learning ecosystem of processes, programmes and strategies that serves goals but yet remains human. As the next big thing, I am very curious to explore how new technologies and organisational structures will effect learning and knowledge practices.

Irina Matthews

Learning Services Coordinator

If asked a question about what is important for me, professionally and personally, I would say “making a difference”.

Working in education, first as teacher and then a curriculum manager and e-learning development coordinator gave me an opportunity to see first-hand the life-long impact of education in terms of changing and improving people’s life prospects. Working for an organisation that enables greater access to research and education is the source of inspiration and motivation to shape up my job role for a maximum impact.

Nadia Sluer

Technical Training Coordinator

I am a Technical training coordinator and program developer with many years of experience providing programs for many GÉANT community members. I have been in the learning and development field for two years, after working for many years in Project Development with several NREN communities.

Prior to GÉANT, I worked in the business development field in corporate environments. My strength comes through using my business experiences to understand what communities need to increase performance and productivity and then design programs that excite and motivate participants.
