About Ignasi: 
Ignasi was born in Barcelona in 1964. After spending some years teaching Private International Law, he worked as an international business lawyer in two different law firms. In 1995 he started a political career, which led him to be a Member of the Spanish Parliament, a Member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and, later, a Member of the European Parliament. During all those years he was strongly involved with international trade and cultural policy, in particular with issues related to the audiovisual and online world. In 2009 he was appointed CEO of the ICAA, Spain's Film and Audiovisual Arts Agency within the Ministry of Culture.
And after a short passage as Director of Public Affairs at the European Broadcasting Union, he has decided to put his best energies and experience at the core service of CUMEDIAE. Among other generous and unexpected recognitions to his work, Ignasi was recently decorated as Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Government.
