Annika Hedberg is Head of Sustainable Prosperity for Europe Programme and a Senior Policy Analyst at the European Policy Centre (EPC). She joined the EPC in 2010, and over the years she has worked on a wide range of specific policy areas, including climate, energy, environment, health, and digital agenda.

In her role as a Head of Sustainable Prosperity for Europe Programme, she aims to promote discussion on the drivers and foundations for growth that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable. This entails heading numerous activities from projects to individual events and contributing to publications that make linkages across sectors and policy areas. The programme explores, more specifically, the means to achieving a transition to cleaner and smarter Europe, and the enablers for change (including single market, digital agenda and trade). In this context, she specialises in the internal dimension of the EU’s Energy Union, climate action, circular economy, smarter use of resources and industrial transformations. She regularly writes, moderates events and speaks on these topics.

Prior to joining the EPC, she worked at the Finnish Business and Policy Forum EVA, a policy think tank based in Helsinki, and at the Finnish Foreign Ministry. She has a LL.M. in Public International Law from the Helsinki University and a BSc in International Relations and History from the London School of Economics.
