About Tatiana Komorná

Tatiana Komorná is a young graduate of Economic Diplomacy at the University of Economics in Bratislava, Slovakia. During her studies, she used the opportunity to study abroad at multiple European Universities such as Business Academy Southwest in Esbjerg, Denmark, and Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Belgium. She gained international experience and learned new methods in digital marketing, project management, and operations management. 

After graduation, she decided to apply for a traineeship to deepen her knowledge. She worked as a Trainee within the Internal Market and Digitalization Policy Unit at the Permanent Representation of the Slovak Republic to the EU, where she was attending the negotiations and worked with the proposals. While having another internship at the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO), where the new Slovak Space Office was recently created, she became enthusiastic about the space sector and space diplomacy. In the near future, she would like to educate more about the topic of the space economy and learn new languages.

As soon as Tatiana got to know about the selection, she said:

“I am very excited and pleased to be selected for the position of SGAC as Operations Officer. I have great admiration for the work of the SGAC worldwide. It is amazing how the SGAC operates in more than 165 countries and became one of the biggest platforms for university students, young space professionals, space agencies and industry. I look forward to my new role, to helping and contributing my bit to the development of the space industry and its great potential.”
