Emerging Technology for Health and Sustainable Development

As an EU Marie Curie Fellow,  I worked at European Commission's Directorate General Joint Research Centre in Brussels (Belgium) and at Grenoble School of Management (France) and collaborated with a number of  partner organizations interested in better managing emerging technologies for social and economic impact. Among them were companies such as Intel and Siemens, universities such as IE Business School and Rotterdam's Erasmus University, and research labs such as Fraunhofer and CERN. My focus was on emerging technologies for health and sustainable development. 

My work at the European Commission was aimed at informing the Commission's policy-making on innovation and technology transfer in Europe, and on eco-industries and health technology. My work with colleagues from Grenoble-em, Bocconi, and CERN, also produced some academic research at the intersection of management, policy, sociology, and philosophy of science and technology.


In case you are interested, here is a study on particle therapy of cancer that my collaborators and I wrote in 2011, presented at Stanford, and later published with Edward Elgar Publishing as part of a book on the management of emerging technologies for socio-economic impact published with other Marie Curie Fellows and faculty. As my research progressed by using network science and computational techniques, I inspired CERN to launch Collaboration Spotting, a data analytics platform helping scientific labs and companies to find new R&D collaborators increasing their technology transfer to society.
