Christophe has 25 years of experience in senior management and communication at the national and international levels. He founded and led various industry associations, such as the European Wind Energy Association, and drove other organizations through major transformations, including the Uranium Institute, the European Biofuels Association, and the European Robotics Association. He also held senior management positions in larger organizations, such as Pechiney/Alcan (now Constellium) and logen. He was publisher of Wind Directions magazine.
As an active contributor to the UN negotiations on climate change, as well as a communicator for science-based organizations, Christophe is aware of the challenges in translating scientific reports into information that can be understood and used by non-scientific audiences. Therefore, it is important to continuously develop outreach activities aimed at policymakers, decision makers, and the public, and to build coalitions wherever possible.
Christophe holds a degree in information and communications from Paris-Sorbonne University and has completed executive education courses at Rouen and Southampton Business Schools.
