Dr Irene Lopez de Vallejo has devoted the last 20 years to multidisciplinary applied technology research, in robotics, high-value manufacturing and the Internet of Things. With a background in sociology and architecture, her long-standing passion is to understand the complex relationships underlying society, technology and continuously evolving physical and digital environments. At the moment, she is driving the Digital Catapult’s regional and international R&D strategy. The Catapult is an UK organisation, and RTO (Research and Technology Organisation) dedicated to applied research around large-scale digital challenges that are too complex, financially risky or will take too long for market forces alone to deliver https://www.digitalcatapultcentre.org.uk/
Irene thoroughly enjoys networking, finding unique people and ideas and bringing them together to solving challenges posed by multi-party, multi-country collaborations.
