Welcoming our new colleague
We are happy to welcome our new colleague, Mathilde Calmels. On 9 November, she joined the Policy Unit as Policy Coordinator in charge of pesticides, natural inputs and fertilisers.
Mathilde is a French national who holds a Master’s degree in agronomy from AgroParisTech and a Master’s degree in European public affairs from University Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne. She has been working in Brussels for two years, monitoring EU agricultural policies for French farmers’ organisations. As agricultural policies are her favourite subject, she is very excited to continue her European adventure by joining IFOAM Organics Europe, where she will work on the organics’ approach to plant health care within the Policy team. Mathilde comes from the South of France, and although she misses rugby and tapenade, she is committed not to leave Brussels until the agroecological transition has taken place!
