Rosina Malagrida

Head of the Living Lab for Health at IrsiCaixa and co-coordinator of the Barcelona “la Caixa” Living Lab. She aims to contribute to systemic transformations in parallel with changes in the R&I system by making them more open, inclusive and transdisciplinary with the aim to achieve high impact solutions for complex societal challenges.

With this aim she offers consultancy and facilitation of multistakeholder innovation ecosystems where different actors are invited to participate in strategic reflections and in the co-design and co-implementation of action plans to promote alignment and improvement of current solutions and to co-design new ones, including policies, services and R&I solutions, among others. The methodologies are inspired by Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and system thinking.

She combines these initiatives with research in collaboration with the VU Universtiy of Amsterdam and with academic teaching in different undergraduate and post graduate degrees of the University of Barcelona (UB) and the Open University of Catalonia (UOC). She also offers trainings in other universities, research organisations and innovation agencies and has already trained more than 5,000 researchers and innovators.

She has previously worked at the Barcelona Science Park and at the science museums of Barcelona and London, and has participated as PI in 10 EC funded projects related with RRI during the last 15 years (RRI Tools, Fit4Food, EnRRICH, InSPIRES, etc.).

BA in chemistry from the UB, MSc in science communication from Imperial College London (with a scholarship from “la Caixa” Foundation), postgraduate by ESADE on strategic communication.
