Policy and Programme Manager, Readie & Digital Frontrunners
Olivia Chapman is a Policy and Programme Manager at Nesta.
Based in Nesta's policy and research team, Olivia works on the impact and opportunities of digitisation - specifically, how to create an inclusive digital economy. She works closely with governments across Europe and leads Digital Frontrunners, a programme for senior policymakers in the Benelux and Nordic regions that enhances government capacity to improve the environment for future skills.
Olivia has co-authored two “Digital Pulse” reports exploring how open people are to new technology. She also co-authored "Policymaking for the 21st century: How digital tools can help", which compares European attitudes towards using technology to participate in politics and policy decisions.
Prior to Nesta, Olivia delivered communications strategies for the New York Times International and PRS for Music. At PRS for Music, she ran the widely publicised Streamfair campaign to raise awareness about online copyright with policymakers.
