My work consists on planning and managing a number urban innovation projects for the city of Zaragoza . After having launched the municipal Wi-Fi network and the public start-up ecosystem, I currently coordinate a small team working on European Projects on Smart Cities, and the activities around the Open Urban Lab (inside that great innovation hub called “Etopia Center for Arts and Technology”.) I am also in charge of the Zaragoza Citizen Card.
Part-time writer and frequent speaker, I have given talks and conferences in 20 countries and 3 continents. A long-life student, I collaborate as a guest lecturer at the Master in Collective Housing at UPM’s School of Architecture
I am co-author of Zaragoza’s Digital Strategy and of the book “Etopia. Center for Arts & Technology”. I have also contributed with two chapters to the book “Network Design and Optimization for Smart Cities”, published by the University of Florida.
In 2018, I was appointed by Eurocities as chair of the Data Working Group.
Since the end of 2020, I am Director of the Zaragoza City of Knowledge Foundation.
