Laura is Team Leader at the Land Portal Foundation.
Over the past 16 years Laura has been working mainly for the land governance sector specialising in information and data management for development with an increasing interest in Open Data, semantic technologies and open standards. She holds a master in communication science and master in economics for developments.
Over the last 10 years Laura has been responsible for the overall management, implementation and expansion of the Land Portal contributing to the process that has seen the Land Portal evolving from a project into the independent organization that maintains the Land Portal website: the single one-stop-shop about land governance data and information and a vibrant convening and knowledge exchange platform that promotes transparency and modern open data ecosystems.
