Mathieu O., Programme manager
I joined the European Commission in 2002 and I currently work at the European Commission’s Directorate General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (DG EAC). I am a Programme Manager for Erasmus+ and part of “European Year of Youth 2022” team.
I am proud to have launched an incredible project called DiscoverEU that gives a chance to 18 years old to win a free travel pass. The fact that my job has an impact on European youth is something that I find very rewarding. My day is spent liaising with youth organisations and young people all over Europe, using social media, disseminating information and building a community of DiscoverEU travellers.
I completed my studies in Marketing and my career path was in advertising. I was always attracted by an international and multicultural environment; and this is why the European Commission was a natural choice for me.
