Dr. Hanna de la Motte is VP of the Business and Innovation Area Material Transition at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. She works with future material production, sustainable business models and material recycling. She works in particular to create an improved understanding of how materials can be better handled over the life cycle by looking at collaboration between different actors from a system perspective, such as the pulp and paper industry, the chemical industry and bio / return refineries.

Hanna has broad competence in e.g. material development, recycling of materials (mainly textiles and plastics), cellulose science, analytical and organic chemistry. She has several years of experience in project management from both large interdisciplinary and system-wide projects (eg Mistra Future Fashion, where she had a leading role) and smaller research projects. She has been involved in several projects that have led to large-scale solutions in Sweden, such as blended textile recycling, new textile fibres and dyeing technologies.
