We envision ECEGA to become the leading forward intelligence provider and vector of sustainable change in Europe, for both policy institutions and industrial stakeholders operating in an uncertain regulatory, economic and investment climate. To this end, we have formed powerful partnerships and developed new streamlined set of services in the past few months. In 2017, we are launching new exciting offerings, such as targeted energy news curation, the launch of our Facebook and Tweeter profiles and the overhaul of our website to accommodate better our evolving strategic direction. By the second quarter of the year, we are launching a new business arm around the low-carbon economy to our consulting services and will start a massive seed capital raising in a matter of weeks. We are currently on the lookout for brilliant minds to help us deliver on our mission and ambitions.
ECEGA is looking to hire an EU affairs professional with a strong track record in research, policy monitoring and communications, to manage our EU monitoring work and reinforce our content development activities.
