My name is Nico Salmela and at Blic...

I started at Blic’s Brussels office in July 2022, after completing an internship in the Cabinet of Member of European parliament. My previous experience includes also working in the public sector and advocacy NGOs. Furthermore, I have accumulated a broad range of skills through working and studying in six different countries, which enables me to approach different societal phenomena in a comprehensive manner. 

Along with work, I am currently completing a master’s degree in European studies at the University of Helsinki. The degree focuses on the political, economic, and cultural issues that revolves around Europe. 

The European level politics are extremely fascinating, and they also have tremendous effects on all the European people and companies. Therefore, I believe that it’s crucial for the European companies to be aware of the swift changes and the different opportunities brought by the EU, and this is exactly what inspires me to work in the field EU advocacy.
