As an intern, Caterina is assisting ECPC team in the area of communication and policy. She is helping with the preparation and the implementation of various projects and with keeping the ECPC website updated.
After graduating in Political Science from the University of Pisa, Caterina continued her studies with a Master’s degree in International Relations and European Studies at the University of Florence, with a specialisation in International Human Rights Law. She has always been passionate about the protection of human rights and the diplomatic career; therefore, she enriched her training with a Master’s in Diplomatic Studies, held by the prestigious SIOI school in Rome, and a year of Universal Civic Service in Brussels. She speaks Italian, English and French.
I believe in helping others and working at ECPC means assisting cancer patients and their families in having their voices heard and urging the European institutions to prioritise cancer research. I think that making an impact in the health sector is crucial for a better society.
