About me

I’m Aurelie Valtat.

On this site I share personal thoughts about global development, communications, digitalEU affairs, innovation in the public sector as well as book reviews on the above, all of which keep me busy during the day in my job as head of digital & internal communications for EuropeAid, the EU’s development & international cooperation arm.
