Prince Constantijn Will Start Working For Euro Commissioner Neelie Kroes
Prince Constantijn of The Netherlands, youngest son of Queen Beatrix, has a new job. The prince will be working for Euro Commissioner Neelie Kroes (Digital Agenda). He was hired for his experience in telecommunication and IT.
At the moment the prince is the head of the Information Policy and Economics department of the RAND Institute. Here he mainly focusses on e-governance. Recently he published the report: ‘Towards a Digital Europe, To Serve The Citizens’. In the report he writes about how Europe can end the problems that consumers face when ordering things on foreign websites, and how more public services can be made available on the internet. Earlier he wrote a report about the importance of identification chips (RFID’s) in health care in the year 2020.
It isn’t the first time the prince will be working for a euro commissioner. In 1993 the prince worked for European Commissioner Hans van den Broek, father of princess Marilene of Orange-Nassau. In her previous position as European Commissioner of Competition, Neelie Kroes already hired another prince, Constantijn’s cousin prince Jaime of Bourbon-Parma.Filed under The Netherlands
