Water GovernanceWater-Smart Society

I started in the EU R&D policy and I stumbled on the water sector fortuitously. I discover a huge and complex topic which is paramount for people and our economies. The most interesting challenge is to contribute in the improvement of the international governance to avoid the “Colorado river effect” and to find innovative solutions to ensure a smart water management with citizens and local authorities.

I joined Water Europe in January 2018. I am in charge of membership and contributing to the policy and advocacy programmes (mainly HorizonEurope, Cohesion policy). I am graduated from the University of Brussels (ULB) in European Studies and also in Law from the University of Bordeaux.

For me, the EJWP is an opportunity to work on European projects and exchange knowledges and best practices to tackle climate change. For me, this challenge is  the most important for my generation and we need to find innovative solutions, particularly for water-related issues. Therefore, I am eager to work with other young professionals to contribute to the development of those solutions and make Europe resilient to climate change.
