Hailing from India, Rachit Sharma obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Engineering studies and is currently pursuing a post-graduate double degree in Public Policy and Human Development, co-organized by the Maastricht University and UNU-MERIT.
Rachit studied the subjects of Regional Integration and Multi-Level Governance at UNU-MERIT because of his deep interest in the role of cities and regions in a globalized world dominated by multi-level governance. During his time as a student, he volunteered at UNICEF, successfully led several group discussions, participated in various group presentations, and has attended different international conferences across Europe. As a research intern, he will contribute to the European Leadership in Cultural, Science and Innovation Diplomacy project (EL-CSID).
During his time at UNU-CRIS, he will be supervised by Luk Van Langenhove, Riccardo Trobbiani and Elke Boers until the end of September 2017.
