Helena Lovegrove

Senior Director for Operations & Projects

Helena joined DIGITALEUROPE May 2018.

Helena has some 20 years working in EU public policy with experience in both the public and private sector on a range of policy and EU funded projects.

After her experience at the European Commission as an economist at DG Competition (cost analysis) she worked for a couple of years at Brussels based public affairs consultancies (Prisma and Blueprint Partners, FTI) focusing on advocacy, business development and marketing. More recently her work has focused on not-for-profit organisations where she has advocated for archives and research library associations in their digitisation efforts and concerns around EU copyright law. Another ongoing project is as a coalition partner in the EU funded project Europeana (Europe’s digital platform for cultural heritage) advising on both engagement and funding. Before coming to Brussels, she was an export consultant in Sweden focusing on helping mainly SMEs tap into European markets.

Helena holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Economics, BSc BA & Econ, as well as a Bachelor of Art in French, both degrees from Lund University.
