In 2013, after working ten years in the public sector in Sweden and at the European Commission in Brussels I decided to start working as an independent consultant and founded Jonathan Olsson Consulting.

I have a Master of Science in Engineering and a University Diploma in Journalism. A combination that has provided me with deep analytical skills and an ability to explain complex matters clear and comprehensible to a broader public.

Over the years I have gained knowledge through a variety of different positions and areas of responsibility, spreading from analytical reports and public inquiries to lecturing, media contacts and participation in international working groups and negotiations.

As a consultant I am specialised in providing advice, expert knowledge and analysis relating to EU law, focusing on various aspects of coordination of social security and cross-border healthcare, i.e. necessary or planned healthcare received during a temporary stay abroad.
