Babis Tsitlakidis

Policy Officer, European Commission, Unit for eHealth, Wellbeing & Ageing, DG CONNECT,


I am currently working as a Policy Officer at the European Commission, in the Unit for eHealth, Wellbeing & Ageing of DG CONNECT.  I am focusing on the policy area for eHealth Interoperability and Standardisation matters and I am participating in the formulation of relevant strategies and policies regarding the realisation of the Digital Single Market.

I am carrying a professional experience of more than 15 years in the introduction, formulation and implementation of Digital Transformation procedures and policies in the Greek Public Administration. I served as the Chief Digital Officer of the Municipality of Thessaloniki, providing vision and leadership regarding the implementation of high exploratory projects and initiatives, particularly in the areas of Smart Cities, Open Data, and the Digital Single Market and acted as an IT Portfolio Manager ensuring the strategic alignment of large and medium scale IT and cross-sector projects.
