Tonci UKAS, 27 years old – Croatia : An internship in the European Commission, DG AGRI.
I was fortunate enough to participate in Erasmus Mundus Master “Food Identity“, that focuses on valorization of traditional regional food products with the EU quality label called Geographical indications. I was graduated in 2014 of Food Identity. After a job at IFOAM-EU in Brussels about the worldwide cooperation of organic food products, my interest remained linked to this specific area in which I was offered an opportunity to do a Blue Book Internship in 2017-2018 in the European Commission, DG AGRI, Geographical Indications Unit responsible for monitoring and processing registration applications of Geographical Indications in the EU.
