Earlier this month, the Pablo de Olavide University, in collaboration with the Cajasol Foundation and the Provincial Council of Seville, held their annual ROMA Awards ceremony. The award celebrates the contribution of women in areas such as business, science, academia and the arts, and ECAT’s Lead Scientist Emilia Gómez Gutiérrez won this year’s award in the STEM category.

Originally a telecommunications engineer, with a PhD in Computer Science and Digital Communication and an extensive background in academia, Emilia has led the JRC HUMAINT project since its establishment in 2018. Coming from a music technology background, she is an expert in the field of trustworthy artificial intelligence and was the first female president of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR).
