Interview with Marie-Françoise Voidrot, Europe Director of the Innovation Program at OGC

Marie-Francoise Voidrot studied meteorology and therefore knows the importance of satellite technology in predicting and monitoring weather patterns. She worked specifically on the integration of information needed by forecaster’s specialized decision tool using WMO standards for many years. Marie-Francoise is now the European Director of the innovation program at the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). She finds her work fascinating, as it is useful for the sustainability of humankind and for business development and any improvement is very quickly adopted and implemented.
