Dr James Taplin - Lead Technologist for Urban Living

James Taplin

Innovation Lead for Urban Living​. I joined Innovate UK in August 2014 to help shape and drive the new urban living innovation programme. With an academic background in ecology and environmental economics, the importance of understanding systems and the ways in which they interact to create strength and resilience has been a common thread running throughout my work. This has been bolstered by working with a wide range of stakeholders both here and overseas – including government, business, and the third sector.​​
