Mary was involved with the Climate-KIC from the beginning of project development both locally within Imperial College London and also at pan-KIC level. She was a member of the winning 3-person Climate-KIC team who attended the EIT Hearings in Budapest on 16 December 2009, and following that was a member of the founding Governing Board, and subsequently Vice Chair (Education). In December 2010, upon resignation of the CEO, she was asked to become Interim CEO and in April 2011 was appointed to the substantive post of CEO. Since December 2010, she has overseen a major simplification project for Climate-KIC, including the development of a new, more appropriate, legal entity and the addition of many new members to create the vibrant Climate-KIC community.
