He has a degree in business management and political science, and has been working in European affairs since 1998. Since joining Euratex in 1999, he has coordinated various European research projects and networks, such as the E-Tailor project (2000-2002), or the LEAPFROG initiative (from 2004). He is secretary of the governing council of the European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing since its establishment in late 2004.
