Camnexus' founders in COP26 Glasgow
It has been a long way to come here. Finally in Glasgow. "The world is watching" is one of the many strongest messages one reads as we make our way from the train station to the Exhibition Centre in Glasgow. And this is true. This is our first COP and we feel tremendously humbled and responsible.
Camnexus, as all our initiatives, is the fruit of our deepest motivation and aspirations to build a better world. Combining our passion for science, maths and technology, our values and vision, we have embraced sustainability, inclusion and innovation. And they are transpired in all our activities.
During our time in Glasgow, we will present and demonstrate how we are working for a low carbon future with our many initiatives.
As Camnexus managing director, I will showcase and demonstrate with actions how we are tackling goals 1 and 2 of the COP26, with technology and innovation that make infrastructure and agriculture more resilient, protecting communities and ecosystems.
This is why I am an Engineer, why I co-founded Camnexus IoT after my PhD at the University of Cambridge and why I work with researchers and experts of Cambridge and abroad advising in innovation and tech transfer for a sustainable future.
In our way to Glasgow Camnexus was selected among the 15 UK companies that can tackle the Net Zero Challenges of Latin American cities. As part of this programme of Connected Places Catapult, we will showcase and pitch our solutions, and we are already building partnership with key stakeholders in Brazil.
I am Jessica Ocampos, PhD in Chemical Engineering of the University of Cambridge and co-founder and CEO of Camnexus. I am Chilean but living in Europe since 2008. My passion for science and technology moved me work in several industries as leading engineer and then to Cambridge, where I did a PhD in Chemical Engineering of the University of Cambridge and then started my startup.
