Yesterday, August 24th, I met Felicia Naranjo Martinez, the Executive Director of The Colorado European Union Center of Excellence, hosted at the University of Denver (http://www.du.edu/korbel/ceuce/index.html). Felicia is a born Coloradan with roots in this state going back more than five generations. Not surprisingly, she has a wide and well established network across businesses, academia and government in the state of Colorado and beyond.
I discussed with Felicia my Fellowship project and in particular the outreach activities sponsored by the EU Center in which I could play a role. There will be no shortage of opportunities. Under the leadership of Felicia, the Colorado EU Center of Excellence does excellent work in promoting understanding of EU affairs and EU/US relations as well as people-to-people links in Colorado and neighbouring states.
