Meet Sergio Marin Zapata

Hello everybody! It is my honour to have joined the European Blind Union as Project Officer. I became a part of the team earlier this month and have since been growing into the role.

Spanish by birth, European by heart and French by choice, I have a background in political science with specialisations in European affairs and international relations from universities in the United Kingdom, France, and Belgium. In the past I have worked as project officer in a French university, as communications officer in a Spanish business school, and as a lecturer in a Hungarian university, on top of traineeships in a supranational body and an international organisation.

I had long wanted to shift from higher education to advocacy and I am delighted that my now colleagues decided to give me the chance to support the advancement of blind and partially sighted people in Europe through my work. I look forward to working with all of you to entrench and enhance our activities at the supranational level, and in that regard please do not hesitate to drop me a line via e-mail or connect on LinkedIn!
