The dedicated and close-knit EuroClio staff work out of our Secretariat, based in The Hague - the International City of Peace and Justice. Managed by an Executive Director and Deputy Director, with others acting as Project Managers, Programme Directors, and Research Coordinators, considerable expertise is shared within the team. This office supports the association by delivering services to Members, Partners and the Board. The majority of its efforts focus on implementing projects and actions identified in the annual Action Plan according to its five Areas of Work and four Topics of Work. Project Managers are responsible for a wide range of projects. The Programme Director and Research Coordinator design and oversee complementary actions. The Director has overall responsibility and fosters partnership development and advocacy.
- The staff member in charge of Events is Alice Modena.
- The staff member in charge of Communication is Andreas Holtberget.
- The staff member in charge of Fundraising is Catherine Savitsky.
Due to the limited size of project grants, the staff works in a holistic and streamlined fashion. In doing so, it maintains a non-hierarchical, lean and agile operation. The Secretariat offers traineeships to students from Europe and beyond and provides real work experience – balancing responsibilities with opportunities to learn and grow.
The Secretariat staff is a truly international one, coming from six different countries and speaking a total of 10 languages: English, Dutch, Italian, Armenian, Ukrainian, Russian, Spanish, German, French and Norwegian.
