Emma Fryer is Associate Director at techUK, the trade association for the UK technology industry.
Emma has worked in and around the technology industry for the last 15 years in a range of non-technical roles that include research and report writing, policy work (from political liaison to detailed negotiations) and project management.
Her first degree was in English at the University of Durham, followed some years later by a second degree in Environmental Science at the University of London. She is now completing an MSc in Environmental Decision Making with the Open University.
She spent five years representing the technology sector in policy matters relating to climate change. Her focus was split between encouraging government to make their policy tools fit for purpose and explaining how the intelligent use of ICT can reduce net carbon emissions.
