Sandra Parthie, Head of Brussels Office/ Head of European Affairs of the Cologne Institute for Economic Research (IW Köln).
I studied political sciences and economics at the Freie Universität in Berlin, Germany and the Université de Montréal, Canada. I live in Brussels since 2005.
From 2006-2011 I was the head of office and political advisor to a German Member of the European Parliament. My work focus was on environment, climate and energy policy. In 2011 I joined French-multinational company Alstom as the Director for EU Regulatory Affairs, with a focus on renewable energies and grid technology.
Since March 2015I’m running the new Brussels Liaison office for private German economic think tank ‘IW Köln’.
I like to travel, to discuss politics and to do some sport (jogging, volleyball, hiking).
