COVID-19 makes more evident the need for an inclusive and collaborative innovation approach: how IoT and biotech can tackle global challenges
I came to Cambridge, UK, in 2011 to pursue my PhD in Chemical Engineering at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology of the University of Cambridge with a biotech degree from the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences of the University of Chile and a professional background in R&D and engineering in the Lab & Analytics and multinational manufacturing industry (P&G, 3M, Air Liquide, Bayer Corp).
Before this pandemic, it was evident that the current global challenges that we were facing as humanity demanded for a new approach of innovation: a more inclusive, collaborative and multidisciplinary approach. And this is at the core of our vision in Camnexus.
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.
