OEB speaker Paul Hearn

Paul Hearn

Senior Expert - Knowledge Management and Learning, European Commission - Joint Research Centre

I have worked for the European Commission in Brussels for 23 years, and have held various positions of responsibility in European scientific research, including supervision of more than 100 international research projects involving multidisciplinary teams of natural and social scientists, engineers, philosophers and artists, including quite a few Nobel Prize winners.

These days I work mainly on special projects of my own creation. I co-founded three internal start-up projects - a silo-busting collaboration platform used by 15,000 internal staff, a bridging project between art and science that has generated a number of high profile art and citizen engagement shows, and an online learning platform with a global reach and an expectation of 2 million users over 2 years.
