By working in close collaboration with the Principal Investigator, the Academic Network Facilitator (ANF) carries out the day-to-day project management, coordinates the activities of the ETT network members and external contributors, is in charge of the project budget, and organises the project meetings. The ANF also supports the individual research of each member, manages the project email and website, populates the online database and carries out the mark-up. Finally, the ANF is in charge of the editorial tasks concerning the final scholarly publication.

The current ANF is Dr Matteo Zaccarini. The previous was Dr Divna Manolova.
