Diego Canga Fano
Principal Advisor, European Commission DG Agriculture & Rural Development
Diego Canga Fano discovered early in his professional life, while employed at a law firm in Spain, that in fact, his vocation lies outside the private sector. He is one of the few European Union civil servants who has seen the inner workings of all three EU institutions; the Council, the European Parliament and the European Commission. He was an official at the Council for nearly 13 years, spent as many years at the Commission and for nearly 2 years he was the Head of Cabinet of the President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani. Today Diego Canga Fano hopes with all his heart to be able to inspire future EU careers among students who are currently studying in universities.
