About me

Valentine joined the ECF as a Grants Officer in January 2021. Based in Paris, she supports French initiatives in their grant-awarding activities to build political will in France.

Before joining the ECF, Valentine used to work as a European Project Manager in the field of Higher Education. She studied applied languages and holds a Master’s degree in International Relations from the University Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne.

She is fluent in French, English, Italian, not bad at Spanish but her Japanese is a bit rusty. Being a natural wanderer, Valentine is delighted to be working with a multi-cultural team. In her own time, she enjoys all kinds of sports from hiking to running or doing yoga, but most of all, playing handball!
