Lola Harre

Product manager – Octopus


I’m the product manager for Octopus, an innovative research publication platform, which aims to create a new primary research record for the scientific community.

My aim is to support the successful launch and life of the Octopus platform – do get in touch if you’d like to know more about this service.


I started my career in academic publishing, working with an international cohort of researchers to deliver projects ranging from archaeology monographs to digitised primary source collections.

Since then I've held various roles across Jisc, engaging with our HE and FE members as part of Jisc's insight and market research division before going on to manage govroam, Jisc's roaming service for the public sector.
