Meera Vijayaraghavan

Senior Innovation Associate


“At NICA we bring together people from business, academia, and members of the public to create innovations that help people live better for longer. I have spent many years working at the interface between industry and academia and enjoyed seeing how each sector could work together and learn from each other. Bringing members of the public into this brings a whole other dimension which is exciting, truly improves the innovation process, and creates products and services that not only fulfils people’s needs but are desirable to use.”
