Toby joined the EN Team in March 2021 after completing a Schuman Traineeship with the European Parliament’s Committee on Culture and Education where he contributed in particular to the on-going European Education Area initiative. Toby currently works on both policy and a number of EN projects including the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Programme, European Social Enterprise Monitor and European Social Innovation Competition. He has a particular interest in European affairs, especially in the potential of international mobility experiences, such as those offered by Erasmus+, to have transformative effects on peoples’ lives. Toby graduated with an MA in European Policy from the University of Amsterdam in 2019. He has dedicated his academic focus to understanding how imaginations of European community and citizenship can be stimulated through educational and cultural policies.
