Julie de Galard

Junior Project and Communication Officer

Julie joined AEIDL in February 2021 for a student internship as a European project Assistant, followed by a Convention d’Immersion Professionelle (CIP) contract as a Junior Policy Officer. During this period, she mainly supported two AMIF-funded projects, MAX and EPIC, in both communication and dissemination activities, as well as in more content-oriented tasks, such as mapping and assessing good practices, designing inclusive communication campaigns, and planning an international diversity film festival (MDFF).

In April 2022, she started a permanent position as a Junior Project and Communication Officer where she provided support on project management and communication in the fields of social inclusion and rural and territorial development. She also participated in the development of the AEIDL initiative, European Local Innovation Forum (ELIF) which she then coordinated. In January 2023, she joined the Rural Pact Support Office team as a policy analyst.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in European Studies from Maastricht University and a Master’s degree in Development Studies with a specialisation in Local Development from the University Panthéon-Sorbonne Paris 1.
