FIAD is glad to welcome Claudia Russo as its new policy advisor.
She is originally from Italy and she holds a BA degree in International Relations and Diplomacy from the University of Trieste and a Master’s degree in European Public Affairs from Maastricht University. After graduating, Claudia moved to Brussels and began her career in public affairs, specialising in the creative and cultural sector. Thanks to her consultancy work, she has a broad range of experience dealing with audiovisual, copyright, publishing and digital issues, as well as other topics affecting the media industry.
Before joining FIAD, Claudia worked as European Public Affairs advisor to the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers (STM). In 2018 she provided Secretariat services to the European Film Agency Directors (EFADs), and developed a focused insight on AV policy and the cinema industry.
Having worked on various dossiers, she has knowledge of a vast array of dossiers, and can provide flexibility and accuracy while keeping the bigger picture in mind. Claudia is delighted to be working for FIAD as policy advisor and looks forward to working with its members in this challenging and exciting time.
