Ingrid Bleeker has a degree from the Economic Faculty of the Hague University of Applied Sciences. After graduation she started working in the publishing industry. She has many years of experience working in STM Publishing, with a focus on subsidiary rights and licensing. She has a practical approach and is able to translate the day to day activities into pragmatic workflows. In this capacity she has co-developed several software systems to manage subsidiary rights requests, and has participated in several user-groups.
Due to her attention to detail and her analytical skills she is strong in creating overviews and providing (contract) analyses. She has participated in Book Archive projects.
She can relate to the different departments in a publishing house and understands that each department runs into different problems/challenges or questions with regards to copyright. As a result she has designed and presented in-house copyright trainings for staff members at different levels.

Currently she also teaches Dutch to foreigners living in the Netherlands.
