The 3 conversations on digital and social communications in the Brussels bubble
November 3, 2017
In the Brussels bubble we've got a unique, vibrant conversation about digital and social communications. It's important to realise though that there are actually a few different conversations happening within that bigger one. My take on the most obvious three: The "public communication" conversation, driven by the EU institutions with their need to reach huge numbers across the continent, usually with a message about the benefits of the EU or something that helps engage citizens...

We must understand not just how to navigate or use technology, but also identify when digital is the right tool, versus when...

An FH Overview on the Future of EU Transport
October 20, 2017
The only certainty we have is that everything is uncertain. Of course, that applies to the EU transport sector as well. In times of confusion and lack of trust, it is important to plan ahead and try to minimise any risks. With dieselgate not being that far behind, manufacturers are trying to regain the trust of millions of EU citizens who are now sceptical towards other promises. Additionally, the industry is attempting to grasp the...

FH Brussels at the IAA2017: a politically charged edition
October 3, 2017
Last Monday 25 September, only two statistics mattered in Germany, an attendee at the International Motor Show (IAA) 2017 in Frankfurt told me: the outcome of the federal elections, which resulted in a substantial loss for the incumbent government, and the number of IAA visitors. The former may well bring Germany’s Greens into the government’s fold, a party that has pledged to ban combustion engines by 2030. The latter, if declining, would give a tacit...
