college of europe graduate specialised in digital policy
My name is Jordan, I'm a graduate from the College of Europe, Bruges, specialised in the EU's Digital, Transport, and Research policies. I speak English, French and German.
My native language is English.
Keen to put into practice the knowledge I have gained throughout my wider life with regard to technology, and more recently with regard to the EU's digital policy, I am currently working with MEP Patrick Breyer on topics such as the DSA, DMA, Chat Control and the ePrivacy Regulation.
In June, I graduated from a Master's degree in Poltiical & Governance Studies, at the College of Europe in Bruges. I specialised in Digital Policy, writing my thesis on the upcoming ePrivacy Regulation.
As a participant on the Telecare and Patient-centric care Committee, I shared my views on the privacy and intercompatibility aspects of telecare.
The Research Executive Agency is a body of the European Commission responsible for implementing research policy. During my Internship, I communicated with stakeholders through the COVID-19 crisis, prepared a new mission statement and brochure for the agency, and worked with the social media team to prepare more engaging content and increase their visibility.
Under my presidency, we deepened our partnership with the Seine-Saint-Denis department, and continued educational actions despite the COVID crisis, conferences with EU officials, including Commissioner Sinkevičius, and millitant actions during the local elections, encouraging candidates to commit to pro-European policy in the form of the Label Ville Européenne.
I oversaw the administration of the association, and organised meetings of the administrative council and general assemblies. I actively partook in the work of the association, teaching young people about European Democracy and Fundamental Rights.
Eurosorbonne is a Student Association at the Sorbonne-Nouvelle. I helped prepare events (conferences with EU officials, Euractiv, social events), and wrote articles for their magazine.
I took classes on European Law (Legal Order, Competition, Internal Market, Environment), European Communication, Negotiation, and Political Sciences. I wrote a two thesis, one on the influence of the media on Brexit, and a second on EU research policy.
As part of the French Ministry of Education's CIEP programme, I spent a year teaching French in a German Secondary School.
I worked in communication and fund raising in Paris, France. I also completely reworked the logo, design language, and website of the Federation.
I facilitated communication between French and German teams, organised tours for partners and employees, and developed IT systems to facilitate plant optimisation.
The degree consisted of two years at the Université Blaise Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand, France and one year at the Universität Regensburg, Germany, studying themes such as the History of the EU, European Policy and Law.
In 2011, I Integrated Paul-Constans, and studied Sustainable Development and I.T. Throughout my time here, I strengthened my French Skills, and excelled in I.T, Architecture, Energy and German. In my final year, I served as student representative on the board of administrators, as well as the boards of health and discipline.
I arrived in France in April 2008. Prior to arrival I spoke no French. I reached fluency in French in my final year at middle school, and graduated with honours.
Having finished primary school in the UK, I spent two years at the award winning Bishop Stopford School.
