Paul Vroonhof is working with Panteia, a Dutch research and consultancy firm. He is responsible for international social studies. He has about 15 years of experience managing EU wide projects involving large teams of experts.
During the past few years, Paul built up substantial experience with studies on the cultural sector, mostly through the management of the European Expert Network on Culture and Audiovisual media, commissioned by DG EAC. He also contributed to specific requests on the music sector or included the music sector, such as an inventory of music support schemes, the evaluation of EUYO, the development of the Preliminary Action for the music sector, and the impact assessment for the next MFF culture strand of Creative Europe.
Paul has been involved in an enormous number of studies and projects in which data played a central role. Paul combines a thorough knowledge of data and methodological instruments with the ability to build consensus between stakeholders on scenarios, required policies, and roadmaps. This has prepared him well for his current position as overall manager of the MME studies on the feasibility of a European Music Observatory and on Market trends and gaps in funding needs for the music sector.
