Margarita Chrysaki, NEREUS Communication and Project Officer

Margarita is strongly passionate for space and communications and she successfully contributed to several project management programmes at the European Parliament as well as in the overall EU sphere.


Through her work as a scientific journalist for Brussels-based magazines, she managed to build a global network of experts in the space sector. In her thesis (Master of Space Studies, KU Leuven) she developed a voluntary Code of Conduct for the space companies as well as start-ups which included a compliance mechanism — a strong governance tool to guarantee sustainability through their products and services.
