Dr Denyse Julien

Deep Demonstration (DD) Senior Program Manager, EIT Climate-KIC

Since 2022, the Irish DD has mapped the Irish Land Agrifood sector and contributed to the development of several other reports. The team developed a set of seven flagships with the aim of supporting the sector to achieve the 2030 emissions targets, and ultimately the Climate Neutral target in 2050. In 2024, they are focussing on the implementation of four of the seven flagships.
Dr Julien is leading on the implementation of two of the Flagships linked to developing a Future vision for the Irish agrifood sector in 2050 and the identification and implementation of a series of bioeconomy opportunities.
In her current role supporting the Irish Land Agrifood sector to achieve their ambitions as laid out in their Food Vision 2030 Strategy, she has engaged with Stakeholders across both the Public & Private sector, research institutions and other Agencies.
She has held several leadership roles during my career in both academia and Industry. She has
lived and worked in five different countries, which has provided her with a unique insight into the challenges of managing across diverse contexts and the nuances of cultural differences.
Her areas of expertise cover Sustainable and Circular supply chain management, Business Model Innovation, Supply Chain Resilience, Supply Chain Strategy, Warehouse Management, and Quality and Operations management.
