Horizon Europe UK National Contact Point for Mobility and Global Innovation Lead for Transport
Louise has worked at the forefront of innovation for over thirty years, first as a government scientist with the Ministry of Defence and later as Open Innovation Champion at General Dynamics. She moved to Innovate UK in 2014 to take on the challenge of increasing the participation of UK organisations in European transport initiatives. After a short spell with the Department of Transport Office for Science, she returned to Innovate UK to shoulder the even bigger challenge of further increasing UK participation in both European and international transport initiatives in a post-Brexit world. Louise is a Chartered Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and so takes a people centred perspective on the challenges for the transport sector to deliver smart, safe and sustainable solutions for society.
