Generic Skills

B.1. Understanding of integrated and sustainable urban development: 
I have a degree in Industrial Engineering with a focus on Sustainable Development and two master programmes, one in Business Administration and one in Management of Technology. Industrial engineering is actually a far-ranging profession that focuses on optimizing complex processes or systems by reducing wastefulness in production. It focuses on systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, and materials and may address mathematical, physical and social science concerns. Sustainable development has been defined as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. However, sustainable urban development implies a process by which sustainability can be attained, emphasising improvement, progress and positive change, incorporating both environmental and social dimensions. Not only the education I received also my professional background has also a lot to do with integrated and sustainable urban development as I have 25 years of experience working at urban, regional and transnational levels dealing with innovation and technology as drivers of change and sustainable development in cities and local environments, while taking into account all dimensions as environmental and social factors.
B1. Assessment: 
1: From the applicants CV, his experience with integrated and sustainable urban development does not become particularly clear. In the application form, the applicant describes various skills and fields of expertise which are relevant for the thematic sphere of the Urbact programme. It is expected he will be able to implement this knowledge in an urban context as well.
B.2. Understanding of exchange and learning processes at transnational level: 
I have been working in international domains for almost 25 years now. I have a lot of experience in exchanging and learning processes at transnational level. I have been involved in more than 100 international projects so far, most of them including mechanisms for exchanging experiences and cross learning. I have participated in several EU Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation. In fact, since 1996 I have been involved in transnational projects under the scope of FP4, FP5, FP6, FP7 and now Horizon2020. I have experience in other ERDF and ESF programmes all around Europe. I am presently involved in several transnational networks and exchange mechanisms such as Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), Watify Experts Programme, Fiware iHub Community, Digital Innovation Hub Catalogue, etc.
B2. Assessment: 
1: The applicant has gained broad international experience under multiple European projects. These programmes ususally involve some form of exchange and learning processes at a transnational level.
B.3. Proficiency in English: 
I have a C2 level in English. Level C2 corresponds to proficient users of the language, i.e. those able to perform complex tasks related to work and study. In fact I usually work in English as my job is fully related to transnational activities both oral and written. I communicate fluently in English. I am frequent speaker in English in international seminars and conferences.
B3. Assessment: 
1: The applicant is proficient in English. His writing style is clear and concise.

Expertise for the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities:

C.3.1. Ability to communicate complex concepts to non-English speakers: 
Coordinating a project is managing technical and personal resources and outputs, but it also means communicating inside and outside the consortium about the objectives, the resources and the outcomes of the activities. In this respect, my role in many projects as lead partner and coordinator included basic and also advanced communication. When we are managing complex projects or we have to deal with complicated concepts, higher communication competences are needed together with the use of advanced communication support tools. One example was Watify. This European initiative was an awareness-raising campaign that stimulated the modernisation of European industry. The campaign focused on the technological transformation of traditional SMEs, promotion of regional digitisation and uptake of advanced technologies – notably Key Enabling Technologies. It was not an easy concept and most of the attendees were non-English speakers. In this respect we created a full set of supporting tools with infographics, factsheets, presentations, youtube links or newsletters among other.
C3.1 Assessment: 
1: The applicant provides a relevant example of communicating complex concepts to non-English speakers
C.3.2. Ability to draw out, support the verbalization and documentation of knowledge and practice from participants: 
I have used different material supporting the exchange of experiences and knowledge. One tool I have used is the template, it helps to collect just the required information and it helps to easily compare results. Although I have used it many times one example was Digitourism, where we created, fulfilled, reviewed and compared policy instruments in different European regions and cities. This template supported all participating partners also when receiving success stories from their peer reviewers. Another tool I have used in this field is DIATEC, a software tool designed specifically to analyse the technological standing point of different organisations. I applied that tool in the Consist project. Thanks to it I created preliminary technical reports of 25 organisations in different countries. Such reports supported the exchange of experiences and knowledge while providing a good tool to enable reasonable and sound comparison of organisations.
C3.2 Assessment: 
1: The applicant refers to methods used to support verbalisation and documentation of knowledge, and specific types of outputs that were produced as a result of this process.
C.3.3. Ability to capture learning for participants to take away: 
One case was the Fitman project, where I was in charge of defining and coordinating the reporting of 15 case studies all around Europe. I created what I called the Trial Handbook, where every trial involved in Fitman had to report about their own experience. Using the Trial Handbook we were able to identify a set of lessons learnt that we shared among all participants in the project. Another example was InnoMonitoring where I created the model we shared among all participants to capture the knowledge and experiences exchanged during the project. Such model included the rationale of the initiative, resources needed, experiences during implementation, and finally outcomes of the project.
C3.3 Assessment: 
1: The applicant refers to two relevant examples of tools and documents that were used to capture the exchange of experiences.
C.3.4. Ability to produce concise reports that incorporate good practices and policy messages: 
I participated for 5 years now in designing, producing and releasing the SME Performance Review report of the European Commission. It is one of the main tools the European Commission uses to monitor and assess countries' progress in implementing the Small Business Act (SBA) on a yearly basis. With an emphasis on the measures from the SBA Action Plan, the review brings comprehensive information on the performance of SMEs in EU countries and other partner countries. It consists of two parts: an annual report on European SMEs and SBA country fact sheets. It brings clear and concise good practices and policy messages that policy makers all around Europe uses periodically. Another example was the study we produced for the Government of Luxembourg “Attract and retain the human resources indispensable for the research development in Luxembourg”. It incorporated policy messages for different ministries in the country.
C3.4 Assessment: 
1: the applicant has broad experience writing reports with good practices and policy messages.
Summary Expertise for the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities: 
Since I started working in transnational cooperation contexts in 1996, meaning 23 years of experience now, I was involved in defining and implementing activities aimed at peer learning and transnational exchange. All the while I was involved in over 100 transnational projects. To name just a few (selecting those with the highest value in terms of tools and methods) I would select: FIMAC Future Internet Macaronesian Platform for Business Acceleration in Cities, where all partners contributed to peer learning in the technology domain of Future Internet –Canary Islands, Madeira and Azores- (www.fiwaremac.org/en). CLOUDFLOW Cloud Computing infrastructure based on existing technology and standards that allows SMEs to offer current and future customers new cloud services (www.eu-cloudflow.eu). My role in these projects, and in many other, were related to the design and implementation of mechanisms facilitating exchange and learning processes together with the management and coordination of some initiatives related to best practices and success stories. Other examples are: Protoatlantic, Digitourism, Digiedupol, Automa, Fabulous, Interport, Gita, Innovation Factory, Ovent, Robomatic, Watify, Diatec, Fitman, Innomonitoring, SME Performance Review, Attract and retain human resources, etc.

Expertise support to local authorities and other stakeholders in designing & delivering integrated and participatory policies

E.1. Knowledge on participatory methods and tools for co-production and implementation of local polices : 
Digitourism is a clear example of the importance of participatory methods for co-producing and implementing local policies, as well as for the proper definition of required local governance. I was involved in this project and I was in charge of creating a Local Stakeholder Group (LSG) in the Spanish region of Canary Islands, in order to co-analyse, co-design and co-produce the regional innovation policies focused on the RIS3 strategy. Later we continue with the LSG in order to monitor the implementation of the policies. My role in the LSG was to coordinate the meetings, to guarantee the outcomes of the meetings and to provide tools and methods for the common working processes. I used Edward De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats theory, Design Thinking techniques, etc.
E.1 Assessment: 
1: The applicant provides a clear example of a project in which participatory methods for co-production and implementation of local policies were applied. He is familiar with RIS3 strategies and seems well aware of innovative methods.
E.2. Knowledge on integrated approach for the design, delivering, monitoring and evaluation of urban strategies/policies: 
I have participated in designing, delivering, monitoring and evaluating sustainable urban strategies in different cities. One example where I was specifically in charge of designing and applying monitoring tools was in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, a Spanish city. First of all I defined the city strategy for the incubation of start-ups. It was a deep and long study. After the study I produced the Incubation Monitoring Strategy Handbook, where I designed a set of monitoring tools to support and supervise the quality of the services provided by the incubation network in the city. The monitoring tool designed and used was a set of indicators with initial values and goals together with a working plan with objectives and milestones.
E.2 Assessment: 
0: The applicant provides examples of projects in which monitoring were of importance but he does not specify clearly the monitoring tools that were used.
E.3. Awareness of the main policy and funding schemes for sustainable urban development at EU and national level: 
I have been working with sustainable urban development at EU and national level for decades now. In this respect it is my day-to-day work to keep up to date about policies, trends and funds. The main EU funding opportunities are: The European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIFs). The ESIFs include the European Regional Development Fund and Cohesion Fund for development and structural adjustments of regional economies, economic change, enhanced competitiveness as well as territorial cooperation, European Social Fund for employment, social inclusion and education, European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development for competitiveness of agriculture, sustainable management of natural resources and territorial development of rural communities, and European Maritime and Fisheries Fund for sustainable fishing and coastal communities. European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI). The EFSI is one of the 3 pillars of the Investment Plan for Europe and aims to overcome current investment gaps in the EU by mobilising private financing for strategic investments European Investment Project Portal Urban Innovative Actions URBACT. It is a European exchange and learning programme that promotes sustainable urban development and helps cities work together to develop pragmatic solutions to urban challenges Horizon 2020. It is the biggest EU research and innovation programme LIFE. It supports environmental, nature conservation and climate action projects
E.3 Assessment: 
1: The applicant is aware of a range of policies under Cohesion Policy and seems up to date on current developments.
E.4. Ability to understand specific local situations and adapt tools and content to different local realities: 
All projects must allow for understanding specificities and local realities, and of course adapting tools and contents to such local context in order to guarantee the designing and delivering of the right policies at local level. In this respect I would say that almost all urban projects in which I took part considered such understanding. From my personal perspective, it is a must. One example was CIDIHUB. The objective of the project was the adaptation of the Digital Innovation Hub concept to the local context of the island of Tenerife. We hardly worked with the local government and the main local stakeholders in order to identify and detail the main challenges in the city. We analysed the concept, technologies, processes, resources and trends of Digital Innovation Hubs in Europe. And finally we adapted the tools and content of the Digital Innovation Hub to Tenerife under the umbrella of CIDIHUB.
E.4 Assessment: 
1: The applicant refers to one relevant example in which he has adapted concepts to a local reality.
Summary Expertise: 
I have long experience in supporting local authorities and other stakeholders in designing and delivering integrated and participatory policies. As concrete examples I participated in Digitourism. It is a clear example of the importance of participatory methods for co-producing and implementing local policies, as well as for the proper definition of required local governance. I have also participated in designing, delivering, monitoring and evaluating sustainable urban strategies in different cities. One example where I was specifically in charge of designing and applying monitoring tools was in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, a Spanish city.
