Julia Hamilton

Management & Operations

Julia is the Innovation and Engagement Lead on the Smart Docklands project.

She has worked in local government in Wellington, New Zealand for over six years where her role focused on harnessing the power of innovation, collaboration, and technology to better understand and address complex societal problems, particularly in the areas of community well-being and emergency management.

CONNECT has partnered with Dublin City Council to spearhead this initiative, which sees the capital’s docklands as a smart city technology testbed. Over 40,000 people work in this thriving business district, and it is home to 26,000 residents. It is also home to many of the world’s leading global technology companies.

The objective is to unite SMEs, technology companies, residents and local government officials in developing, testing and improving innovative technology-based solutions to living and working in the district.
