To mark International Women's Rights Day, we invite you to meet four women who hold positions in various disciplines within the University, making a vital contribution to the institution's missions.

Marielle Blanc - Financial Manager UPR LaPEC

Marielle Blanc is financial manager for the STAPS department and the Laboratoire de Physiologie Expérimentale Cardiovasculaire (UPR 4278 LaPEC).

The financial manager acts as an intermediary for teacher-researchers in the administrative management of their projects. They help them draw up their budgets and manage income and expenditure in accordance with financial rules. In this way, they help to facilitate the involvement of researchers in their research work.

Valentina Citterio - Doctoral student in theatre studies (ICTT)

Valentina Citterio is a doctoral student in theatre studies with the Research-Creation label, working in the Cultural Identity, Texts and Theatricality laboratory (UPR 4277 ICTT).

Her research focuses on the poetic work of Dominique Fourcade, which is considered to be one of the most singular of recent decades. The link between poetry and dance has been present since her first poems were published. Yet none of her collections has ever been transposed for the stage. It is this possibility of transposition that she is working on, developing in particular her research into the link between body and text, gesture and speech.

Valérie Salin is administrative manager of the UMR Étude des Structures et des Processus d'Adaptation et des Changements de l'Espace (UMR 7300 ESPACE).

Her current role involves coordinating the laboratory's administrative and financial activities, consolidating data from the UMR's four sites, ensuring that procedures and regulations are complied with, and so on.
The overall aim is to provide support to the laboratory's research staff on aspects that are not their core business, in particular by acting as an interface with central services, for example when drawing up a partnership agreement.
