For solid decision-making in health policy, we need to translate information into actionable insights. Bridging the gaps between stakeholders futureproofs our health systems, drives performance and contributes to health policy that we all benefit from.

Passionate about European health policy, Femke connects her various experiences with health systems and policy expertise to provide valuable insights and impactful results. She was a trainee at the Health DG of the Council of the EU, working on EHDS, SoHO, Council Recommendations on Cancer Screening and other files. Prior to her traineeship, she supported the European Health Forum Gastein as a programme assistant and was a health systems research assistant at several Dutch companies and research institutions.

She graduated in Public Health (BSc) at Amsterdam University College, followed by the joint degree European Master’s in Health Economics and Management, specialising in Health Economics and Policy in four countries. At Acumen, she brings this experience with her to advise on projects in non-communicable diseases and pharmaceutical legislation.

As a Dutch national with a good deal of experience abroad, Brussels feels like a home game, while providing a dynamic environment to learn something new every day, especially given the increasing role of health in the European policy arena. She is fluent in Dutch and English.
