Sophie Bourez

Project Manager
Sophie earned a degree in bioengineering, specializing in food science and technology, and a PhD in cellular biochemistry, nutrition and toxicology from the Catholic University of Louvain. She then joined the Wagralim team as Knowledge Manager. For 3 years, she worked on the implementation of an information storage and management tool, developed an analysis grid with relevant economic and financial indicators to carry out economic segmentation analyses of the agri-food sector and carried out various sub-sector studies to identify opportunities, major challenges and lines of thought so as to ensure the future of the sector under study. Sophie has thus acquired a very sound understanding of the Walloon agri-industrial fabric. She changed jobs after 3 years to become R&D Manager at Wagralim.

Her main role is to provide enthusiastic guidance and support to food companies, researchers or training stakeholders in implementing innovative and relevant collaborative projects with real potential for added value on the markets.
