Rosa is a Senior Associate for the Transport Programme at the ECF with a keen focus on the decarbonisation of transport and the promotion of e-mobility in Spain, while also giving support to the overall Spain Programme strategy.
Before joining the ECF, she was actively involved in politics. Rosa was a member of the Spanish Parliament, where she was part of the Ecological Transition, Industry, Economy and Science committees. She was also a co-spokesperson of the Spanish Green party and coordinated the green-left coalition group in the Basque Parliament.
Rosa grew up in a coal mining area, studied in Madrid and lived in Grenoble (France) for four years. She has a background in Political Science and experience managing European Projects, as well as being an Education Manager for the Aranzadi Society of Sciences, an NGO working on natural and cultural heritage.
For her, the ecological transition is much more than a case of decarbonising the economy. Social, cultural and relational repercussions must be accounted, from an equity and well-being point of view. Moreover, the gender perspective is an important aspect that needs to be present in these analyses.
