This Com­mis­si­on depart­ment is respon­si­ble for deve­lo­ping trans­port and mobi­li­ty poli­ci­es for the EU, making trans­port sus­tainable, safe, afforda­ble and acces­si­ble to all. The date of effect of this appoint­ment is yet to be deter­mi­ned.
With almost 10 years of expe­ri­ence in seni­or manage­ment posi­ti­ons at the Com­mis­si­on, inclu­ding over 8 years in the field of trans­port, Mag­da Kop­c­zyns­ka is par­ti­cu­lar­ly well-suited to take on her new posi­ti­on. She is endo­wed with estab­lished skills in pro­vi­ding effec­ti­ve lea­der­ship and manage­ment, and has a demons­tra­ted capa­ci­ty for imple­men­ting sound stra­te­gic coor­di­na­ti­on to suc­cessful­ly achie­ve the objec­ti­ves of her depart­ments. In her new capa­ci­ty, she will also draw on her tho­rough know­ledge of the various aspects of trans­port poli­cy, with a par­ti­cu­lar empha­sis on water­bor­ne trans­port as well as on the sus­taina­bi­li­ty and inno­va­ti­on aspects in mobi­li­ty.
