Generic Skills
B.1. Understanding of integrated and sustainable urban development: 
In the past 10 years, I have dealt with integrated and sustainable urban development with two entry points. On the one hand, I have researched and analysed cities, looking at cases and snapshots which could feed into wider urban planning and bring in added value to other EU cities through transnational learning and exchange. This has been my URBACT experience since 2014 (Social innovation in cities, REFILL and MAPS networks, the Summer University in Rotterdam in Summer 2016, the URBACT City Festival in October 2017). On the other hand, I have worked at the local level with administrations to support the co-creation of their Sustainable Food and Urban Agriculture Strategy (Brussels Ministry of the environment, in 2015), on analyzing and experimenting new collaborative models between public administrations and citizens/citizens’ initiatives (VILCO), and training local administration on “Integrated Strategies” and “Transversality” (in autumn 2016). Moreover, my studies also provided me with complementary approaches: a Master’s degree in European public policy (UCL, London in 2007) gave me the lens to analyse all the levels of the policy cycle at EU, national as well as local levels. With an extra Master’s degree in management of the environment (ULB, Brussels) in 2014, I have focused on the transition towards more resilient societies and cities, especially from the viewpoint of environmental impact and increasingly wicked challenges.
B1. Assessment: 
1: The candidate demonstrates convincing proof of her understanding of integrated and sustainable urban development.
B.2. Understanding of exchange and learning processes at transnational level: 
My professional career has focused heavily on making the link between existing initiatives at ground level and upper levels of governance (EU, federal/national, and local). The main has been on the empowerment of stakeholders and capitalization from existing experiences, as well as the provision of frameworks for these exchanges as an on-going lasting processes. In addition to ‘traditional’ activities (workshops, conferences, roundtables, expert’s panels) I have designed participatory and co-creation processes for peer to peer exchange, such as: the URBACT Workstream on Social innovation in cities’ results, in 2015 to elected representatives, urban practitioners, and experts. I have also developed an extended experience of working with the URBACT programme with the REFILL and MAPS networks, facilitating the ULG@work sessions during the Summer University in Rotterdam in Summer 2016, facilitating two panels at the City Festival Festival in October 2017 and supporting the MAPS network. I am also facilitating learning and exchange as a Community Manager bringing together managing authorities dealing with EU Regional Funds, in a project funded by DG REGIO.
B2. Assessment: 
1: The candidate demonstrates convincing proof of her understanding of exchange and learning processes at transnational level.
B.3. Proficiency in English: 
I have written multiple reports and made various presentations in English: for native speakers (for example in UK contexts, e.g. through coordination meetings) as well as for non-native speakers’ audiences (e.g. URBACT City festivals May 2015 and October 2017). My written publications range from case studies to formal reports, through journalistic types of writings. I have also published a chapter in a Routledge publication based on the data collected during the above mentioned URBACT Workstream on Social innovation in cities. I also publish articles on my personal blog and on the URBACT blog. Oral presentations range from static to interactive presentations of project results through dynamic facilitation of activities as well as immediate integration and analysis of outcomes of events (e.g. rapporteur at workshops) and trainings.
B3. Assessment: 
1: The candidate points to convincing evidence of her proficiency in English.
Expertise for the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities:
C.3.1. Ability to communicate complex concepts to non-English speakers: 
In the “URBACT Capitalisation process – Social innovation in cities” in 2015, I have co-designed tools to communicate the concept of social innovation to non-English speaking audiences. These have been through the use of visuals (simplistic representations of complex issues and concepts), dynamic presentations and colours (through powerpoints and work on fiches), malleable and palpable tools (e.g. the living exhibition on card boards which could be held, turned and returned by the participants), embodied in a wider picture (through posters). The details can be found on the project’s activity (http://www.sustainable-everyday-project.net/urbact-socialinnovationincities). During the project on “economics and social benefits associated with the Natura 2000 network” for DG ENV in 2009, various guides, grids, posters and facilitation tools were used for exchanging with partners in all the countries. One key priority had been to define clearly understandable working definitions and grids which were sent to the participants before each of the encounters.
C3.1 Assessment: 
1: The candidate points to more than one valid example of her ability to communicate complex concepts to non-English speakers.
C.3.2. Ability to draw out, support the verbalization and documentation of knowledge and practice from participants: 
I have prepared templates for data collection, cases studies, reporting, summarizing, or presenting, in almost all of my projects. I have prepared interim and final reports notably for the Benefits of achieving the EU biodiversity objectives in the “URBACT Capitalisation process – Social innovation in cities” in 2015, “Labour Market and identification of shortcomings in the current workforce skills to reap these benefits and achieve these targets” for DG ENV in 2011, or “Mid-term evaluation of Europe Direct Information Centres (2009-2012)” for DG COMM in 2011. I have prepared and worked on several briefing papers for conferences, for example for the “Mutual Learning Programme” for DG EMPL in 2009 or the “Restructuring Forum devoted to innovative actions for projects under Article 6 of the ESF Regulation No 1784/1999 of 12 July 1999” for DG EMPL in 2008. I have also contributed to many batches of case studies and good practices presented in reports and on websites, e.g. for Design, Implementation and Cost Elements of Green Infrastructure Projects for Dg ENV in 2011 (http://www.ecologic.eu/files/attachments/Projects/2346_gi_dice_finalreport_16dec11.pdf) or the Year of creativity and innovation – 2009, for Dg EAC (http://www.create2009.europa.eu/projects.html).
C3.2 Assessment: 
1: The candidate provides more than one example of outputs to support the verbalization and documentation of knowledge and practice from participants.
C.3.3. Ability to capture learning for participants to take away: 
As presented above, I feel strongly that empowering participants in transnational projects is key: whether they are direct or indirect participants. One crucial aspect for this is to ensure they have support material that they can take home. The most striking example of this has been the contribution of the Tribune article and Special Edition of the “URBACT Capitalisation process – Social innovation in cities”: these have been widely disseminated electronically and during all the URBACT and non URBACT related events. Participants were keen to have the electronic version and to read parts of them or their entirety. These indeed presented different stages of our analysis and of cases we had observed with concrete recommendations as to the way cities could learn from this experience. After each event or conference I have also produced minutes and summary reports such as for the “Benefits of achieving the EU biodiversity objectives in the Labour Market and identification of shortcomings in the current workforce skills to reap these benefits and achieve these targets” for DG ENV in 2012 or for the “Restructuring Forum devoted to innovative actions for projects under Article 6 of the ESF Regulation No 1784/1999 of 12 July 1999” in 2008 for DG EMPL. Other examples, are that of the case studies, for exampe in the project “Design, Implementation and Cost Elements of Green Infrastructure Projects” for DG ENV in 2011.
C3.3 Assessment: 
1: The applicant points to more than one valid example of her ability to capture results for the participants to take away.
C.3.4. Ability to produce concise reports that incorporate good practices and policy messages: 
I have produced several reports each of which included executive summaries, analysis, interviews, quotes from different cases and people. These also included case study boxes, presented either as transversal examples or sectorial comparison of key elements of various practices. This was for example the case in the Final report of the “URBACT Capitalisation process – Social innovation in cities” in 2015. In the conclusions of the reports for work on EU policies and programmes, these always included policy recommendations to different levels of governance. This was for example the case for the “Benefits of achieving the EU biodiversity objectives in the Labour Market” for DG ENV in 2012 or the “Mid-term evaluation of Europe Direct Information Centres (2009-2012”) for DG COMM in 2011.Other such recommendations were included in reports for the “Evaluation of the Joint Harmonised EU Programme of Business and Consumer Surveys” in 2011 or that of the “Restructuring Forum devoted to innovative actions for projects under Article 6 of the ESF Regulation No 1784/1999 of 12 July 1999” in 2008.
C3.4 Assessment: 
1: The candidate provides convincing examples demonstrating her ability to produce concise reports that incorporate good practices and policy messages.
Summary Expertise for the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities: 
I have over ten years of experience of combining research and analysis for the empowerment of stakeholders. For this regard I have focused heavily on the identification of practices that could be inspiring for other stakeholders: so that they can compare themselves to other initiatives, learn from their lessons, and take away what they feel is necessary and relevant. This goes hand in hand with the support of a network of these activities. This means that I have developed series of tools and methodologies that are easy to use and grasp: face-to-face communication and learning transfer for example, through the use of visuals, dynamic presentations and colours, malleable and palpable tools, embodied in a wider picture. Throughout many projects I have developed case studies collections based on in-depth visits to initiatives, with a flexible methodology: sometimes based on various guides, grids, posters and facilitation tools, sometimes more in an exploratory manner. I find blogging and the use of social media also key to create and support networks of stakeholders on given topics or interest. Report, with policy messages and recommendations are also very accessible and always available information that urban practitioners and experts can easily refer to.

These have been the set-up and support of the “Fridge Masters”’ network (citizens fighting against food waste), a “Sustainable table” toolkit” for the Etterbeek council I also supported a research project on the logistics of Short Food Supply Chains in Brussels. I have also worked at a strategic level to support the region of Brussels in its policies through the “Support to the co-construction of a Strategy on Sustainable Food and Urban Agriculture” and “Benchmarking study of existing systems for the disposal of tap water in restaurants” . I designed and implemented a class linking theory with practice, on the theory of practices: theory and practice with the case of anti food waste practices” at ULB. I have been a member of the Brussels Network of Sustainable Food Stakeholders (RABAD) since 2013, maintain a blog of sustainable recipes.

Expertise support to local authorities and other stakeholders in designing & delivering integrated and participatory policies
E.1. Knowledge on participatory methods and tools for co-production and implementation of local polices : 
The “Support to the co-construction of a Strategy on Sustainable Food and Urban Agriculture in the Brussels capital region” (2015), was designed in two phases. 1.The project was launched through an event co-organised with the Ministry of the environment. I co-created snapshots of food landscape in Brussels in 2035 in the form of posters (based on literature review) which were presented in plenary and then discussed with groups. I then facilitated group works on the co-construction of a common vision for the landscape of food system in Brussels In 2035. This facilitation was based on guiding questions, creation of a poster and presentation in plenary. 250 people attended this launching event. Following this event, a vision was designed. 2.In 6 subsequent workshops I co-facilitated the operationalisaiton of this vision, through objectives and action pre-defined by the Ministry. These workshops included a budgetisation of the activites. We used posters with pre-defined question (who does what, with what funding, how …), we had prepared guiding suggestion to unblock the debate if needed, and subquestions to be answered to in order to ensure the operationalisation was fully conducted. The last part of this day was a presentation and video capture of each of the posters (6 in total), and a priorisation of the actions. The outcomes of these discussions, and working groups will be integrated in the Strategy on Sustainable Food and Urban Agriculture in the Brussels region.

E.2. Knowledge on integrated approach for the design, delivering, monitoring and evaluation of urban strategies/policies: 
The example given above provides insights into the way I co-designed an urban strategy. Through the “Benchmarking study of existing systems for the disposal of tap water in restaurants” I have also designed a sustainable policy but also provided the tools and methodology which could be used to make it effective, as well as monitoring and evaluation methods that would need to be ensured. Through the URBACT Capitalisation work on Social innovation in cities, I have also provided recommendations for designing, implementing and upscaling/diffusing new policies enabling new approaches for city governance.
E.2 Assessment: 
1: The applicant shows several examples that demonstrate her knowledge about the design, delivering, monitoring and evaluation of urban strategies/ policies.Provided more than two example that demonstrate the ability to produce concise reports that incorporate learning from exchange and learning activities, put forward good practice and policy messages targeting city practitioners and urban policy-makers (for participants as well as for an external audience).Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

E.3. Awareness of the main policy and funding schemes for sustainable urban development at EU and national level: 
I possess theoretical and practical insights which have equipped me with a strong basis to easily identify development of policy and funds schemes related to sustainable urban development. I monitor policy trends, EU funding- to identify opportunities for projects as well as to observe the positioning of the EU. I also carry out academic analysis of these developments. For this purpose I use my private and professional network, offline and online. I use generalist media as well as social media (Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin) to get up to date. I also regularly visit pages of EU DGs and initiatives. I regularly attend conferences, fora and symposia. Based in Brussels, I have easy access to them. When I am unable to travel I also follow the webcasts of these events.
E.3 Assessment: 
1: The candidate demonstrates a good awareness of the main policy and funding schemes for sustainable urban development at EU and national level.Provided more than two example that demonstrate the ability to produce concise reports that incorporate learning from exchange and learning activities, put forward good practice and policy messages targeting city practitioners and urban policy-makers (for participants as well as for an external audience).Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Cras at odio ultricies, rutrum lacus in, bibendum eros. In eget sagittis neque. Sed imperdiet vestibulum convallis. Nullam metus libero, ultrices sit amet fringilla non, euismod et ex.

E.4. Ability to understand specific local situations and adapt tools and content to different local realities: 
Understanding the local situation is key in order to ensure that adequate tool are designed. This has for example been the case of my work on “Benchmarking study of existing systems for the disposal of tap water in restaurants”. The rationale was to identify what works in other EU cities and what could correspond to the cultural reality of the Brussels region. Having worked on many EU projects, I have always first sketched to the reality of the countries and cities being studies on a given topic, to grasp the extent to which the issues were wicked, needed a holistic approach and which had it been in this particular context. This has always been the prerequisite to design the subsequent tools. The tools, such as toolkits, collection of good practices, case studies, reports, recommendations, all had features which could be common across countries and cities and specific ones (presented by theme, region, size of cities etc…)
E.4 Assessment: 
1: The candidate provided 1 valid example of being able to understand specific local situations and adapt tools and content to different local realities. Provided more than two example that demonstrate the ability to produce concise reports that incorporate learning from exchange and learning activities, put forward good practice and policy messages targeting city practitioners and urban policy-makers (for participants as well as for an external audience).Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

Summary Expertise: 
I have strong experience in designing and delivering integrated and participatory policies, from the very street level to EU level, trough city and regional levels. Understanding the local situation is key in order to ensure that adequate tool are designed. The rationale is to identify what works in other EU cities and what could correspond to the cultural reality of a given city or Region. Yet, the best at knowing what suits them are the stakehodlers concerned: the role of the epxert as such is to support the process but not to direct it, to be present but not overwelming, to let ideas arise being able to steer the co-creation process... Having worked on many EU projects, I have always first sketched to the reality of the countries and cities being studies on a given topic. This has always been the prerequisite to design the subsequent tools. The tools, such as toolkits, collection of good practices, reports, recommendations, all had features which could be common across countries and cities and specific ones. All the above-mentionned projects and experiences include elements of integration and participation. No methodology is fixed: it is udpated as needs to be upfront and during the processes, be they supported by visioning, roadmapping, backcasting, co-creation, monitoring or evaluation methods that would need to be ensured...
Assessment: 
The candidate meets all the criteria regarding expertise support to local authorities and other stakeholders in designing and delivering integrated and participatory policies and should be therefore validated for E.
