Our event moderator Charlotte Geerdink has been working in Brussels for nearly 8 years and building up expertise in European science, research and innovation topics. By coincidence, she started moderating high level events and found out that she loved to do it.

Anything really related to the current European research and innovation programme Horizon 2020 and its successor programme FP9 as well as relevant EU research and innovation policy are at the heart of her professional and personal interest. In the meantime, she has diversified her portfolio and also moderates a variety of topics.

Charlotte is a Dutch and she is fluent in English, German and she has a good command of French. Her style of moderating can best be described as informal, relaxed, and witty. Her aim is to bring complex material in an understandable way. Making the speakers, panelists and audience feel at ease is what she always strive for.
