Data Protection: Brave new world of data
Irene Lopez de Vallejo
Director of Collaborative Research, Regional and International Development at Digital Catapult, London
I have 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, my long-standing passion is to understand the complex relationships underlying society, technology and continuously evolving physical and digital environments. I am at the moment 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/
I thoroughly enjoy networking, finding unique people and ideas and bring them together to solving challenges posed by multi-party, multi-country collaborations.
You can find me @ILdeV always #doingseriousfun for life is too short not to!
