Brieuc Van Damme founded Bære Craft Consulting on the back of 10 years of policy experience. He was named by Politico as one of Europe’s “rising healthcare stars” and has negotiated Belgium’s healthcare budget, established a transnational cooperation on medicine assessment and reimbursement that’s endorsed by the European Commission, the OECD and the WHO, and established a long-term deal between the Belgian government and the pharmaceutical industry. 

Brieuc has authored a book that inspired Flanders’ renewed elder care policy. Beyond health care, he's put civic service on the legislative agenda, proposed an egalitarian parental leave reform, drafted a deontological charter for governments endorsed by the Belgian Prime Minister, and collaborated with the Minister for Digital Agenda and Harvard Global Health Institute on mobile health applications.

Brieuc is an economist from Leuven University and the College of Europe. He co-founded and chaired the Friday Group think tank sponsored by the King Baudouin Foundation, was deputy chief of staff for Belgium’s Minister of Public Health and Social Affairs, guest professor at the Ecole Nationale d’Administration of Kinshasa (DRC) and guest lecturer at the universities of Ghent and Antwerp. He's been a board member of Belgium’s Health Technology Assessment body (KCE) and the Health Insurance and Reimbursement Institute (INAMI).

Brieuc shares his time between Belgium and Tromsø, Norway, where he lives with his wife. When in Belgium, he enjoy's the best his country has to offer: gastronomy and political debate. When in Norway, you're most likely to find him skiing down a mountain.
