Founder & Executive Director of Diplomacy Matters (dot) org!
We have a grant with the European Commission and are working to accelerate EU-US collaboration and research in key sectors -including smart, green, integrated transport! The recently launched EU Funding program - Horizon 2020 - has numerous open calls for research cooperation in all things GREEN and Transport related! With over 80 Billion Euros in funding - the EU is committed to addressing societal challenges and spurring transformational innovation.
Have been very impressed with the policy commitment and financial incentives that the EU puts into integrated and sustainable transport planning. From tech optimization and innovative traffic management systems - to new infrastructures for cycle lanes -they are pushing ahead as a thought leader in all things green in urban mobility.
Savvy lady & slightly senior socialpreneur! Launched non-profit (@Diplomacy_Notes) to create global partnerships, share best practices (especially in green and sustainability) & amplify diplomacy!
