Our Team


Like all successful organisations the Innovation Observatory is built on the collective effort of a multidisciplinary team. Each member of our internal team plays an important and necessary role in supporting the delivery of our shared vision.

We pride ourselves on producing high-quality outputs, undertaking robust and informative research, employing and developing cutting edge methods and tools, and ensuring that we, and our stakeholders, stay ahead of the innovation curve.

The team is led by Professor Dawn Craig (Director), Dr Teresa Fortune (COO), Janet Lewis (Centre Manager).
