Christine previously gained consultancy experience as a project consultant in the area of strategy development and project management at a consulting company in Stuttgart. She supported strategy development projects for a large automotive company in the field of e-mobility and was responsible for workshops and project management tasks.

Christine graduated as B.A. Architecture at the msa - Münster School of Architecture and subsequently completed the course of studies B.A. "Culture and Business" at the University of Mannheim with a focus on Business Administration and Romance Studies/Spanish.

Mickael Thiery
Mickael Thiery works at the French Ministry for the Ecological Transition where he is Deputy Director in the Department in charge of sustainable buildings. Over the last years, he has been particularly involved in the preparation of the future environmental regulation for new buildings which includes energy and carbon requirements.

The Ministry for the Ecological Transition is responsible for State Environmental Policy (Preservation of Biodiversity, Climate Kyoto Protocol Application, Environmental Control of industries, etc.), Transportation (air, road, railway and sea regulation departments), Energy and Construction, Renovation and Housing Policies.
The Directorate of Housing, Planning and Landscape addresses the housing and accommodation needs of citizens and, in particular, helps to program the production of housing. It promotes sustainable development of territories by ensuring that planning documents and development operations meet the needs of the population and integrate sustainable development issues. This policy must also encourage and support projects in territories. It contributes to making the building an effective lever for sustainable development and as such strives to improve the quality, accessibility, resources efficiency and energy performance of buildings
