The Hague

Gijs completed his study ‘European Studies’ at The Hague University of Applied Sciences in 2022. During his studies, he specialised in the public side of the European Union. With his background, he acquired knowledge on the European structures within the Union and gained experience with European policy, law and politics. His knowledge allows him to strengthen the European affairs team.

With my broad knowledge, it is interesting to assist on various projects in which I can apply my European knowledge. Additionally, I happily search for and advice clients on interesting grants for their innovative ideas.

In my spare time, I like to go out with friends, workout at the gym, or visit Friesland for a weekend.
