What I do

Emma is an Assistant Programme Manager working in the Challenge Prize Centre, supporting the delivery of a number of prizes, including the Mobility Unlimited Challenge.


Emma joined Nesta from Leonard Cheshire Disability where she spent 3 1/2 years working across their digital inclusion and assistive technology programmes. She is also a former Co-Director of the UK Youth Climate Coalition, where she volunteered for two and a half years. Before coming to London, Emma worked at a few other non-profits around the world including Greenpeace International and the Women's Global Network for Reproductive Rights.

At the weekends, Emma can be found spending most of her salary on houseplants, and spending time with her cat, Rory.

The $4 million Mobility Unlimited Challenge supports radical improvements in the mobility and independence of people with lower-limb paralysis through smarter assistive technology. We're looking for innovative teams from around the world to build the next generation of mobility devices for people with lower-limb paralysis. Today the team announces their 10 Discovery Awardees.
