Email: cbourillon@wfsj.org

Christophe offers a 25 year 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 (EWEA) and drove other organizations through major transformations such as the Uranium Institute, the European Biofuels Association, and the European robotics association. He held senior management positions in larger organizations, such as Pechiney/Alcan (now Constellium) and logen. He was the publisher of the magazine ‘Wind Directions’.

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 could be understood and used by non-scientific audiences. Therefore, it is important to continuously develop outreach activities towards policy makers, decision makers and build coalitions wherever possible.

Christophe holds a degree in Information and Communications from the Paris Sorbonne University and has completed Executive Education courses at the Rouen and Southampton business schools.
