I work as a researcher at the European Commission science and knowledge centre, the Joint Research Centre. I am the lead author of EntreComp: the Entrepreneurship Competence Framework, published by the EC in 2016. My job focuses on helping develop entrepreneurship as a lifelong learning competence, bridging the world of education and the world outside formal education and training systems. My background is in the field of human-machine interaction. For more than ten years I have carried out research to understand how technological innovations can make users’ and citizens’ life easier by supporting their activities or enabling new interaction spaces. I hold a Diploma in Social Sciences, a MSc in Human-Computer Interaction, a PhD in Robotics for Dementia Care, and a Post-graduate Certificate in Public Policy and Management.
