A week in Brussels

Brussels is the final destination today. I have an assignment for the European Commission. I will stay in Brussels for a whole week.

I have been working for the European Commission in a range of capacities from evaluator of proposals, rapporteur, reviewer, expert, work package leader of several projects and partner in several projects since 1983.

In 1982 I was at the Online Conference in London when I met the EU official Franco Mastroddi. I was working at that time for the publishing company VNU Business Publications in London. I was busy with new media projects, amongst others setting up a daily electronic newsletter for the computing industry. The project fitted in the Document Delivery programme, which was presented in 1983. By 1984 the project IDB Online was launched in Europe and a quarter later in the US.
