She organises IRGC collaborative activities, focusing in particular on the role of IRGC as a multi-stakeholder platform and a convening place at the interface between science and public policy.
She joined the International Risk Governance Council (IRGC Foundation) www.irgc.org in 2006.
From 2000-2006, she worked for local authorities, helping them develop and implement strategies for sustainable development, and for philanthropic and humanitarian organisations. She spent the first part of her career (1984-1999) in an international socio-cultural research and marketing consulting firm. Marie-Valentine graduated from Science Po in Paris (public policy and management), and then earned post-graduate diplomas in marketing strategy, sustainable development and environmental diplomacy.
Her current involvement in IRGC activities is mostly related to:
- systemic risks and transitions, governance of risks related to emerging and converging technologies
- digital policy, specific risks related to machine learning
- precision medicine
- synthetic biology
- climate engineering
