Christian Cools, Commissioning Editor at ARTE G.E.I.E
After studies and work as a Dr.-Ing. in the field of passive solar energy applied to buildings, I oriented my career towards audiovisual medias, and made it to ARTE, the french-german cultural public channel, in 1995. Working at the Strasbourg offices as a commissioning editor, I am in charge since 2013 of the daily slot ARTE-Discovery, devoted up to around 75% to natural history programms. for that slot I am coproducing or acquiring internationally around 50 films a year.
