Generic Skills

B.1. Understanding of integrated and sustainable urban development: 
My experience in the sustainable integrated urban development started in 2004 (12 years of experience) firstly based in the City of Burgos, and mainly regarding sustainable urban mobility projects, but also working in other fields as energy, environment, sustainable land use or sustainable economic development. I had to work with different stakeholders, including technicians and politicians but also associations, unions, neighbourhoods... Up to date I still work in four European projects, three of them with local authorities. In these projects I always had the role of coordinator, but in a good part of them also the dissemination and/or evaluator leader. In all the projects, the public participation and the involvement of the stakeholders have been crucial, identifying quite easily after all these years of experience the best way to engage them, in a win-win strategy.
B1. Assessment: 
1: The candidate demonstrates convincing proof of his understanding of integrated and sustainable urban development. His answer in the application form is not very explicit but his CV shows that he has both educational (e.g. PhD. focused on sustainable urban mobility plans) and professional experience (e.g. participation in CiViNET; EC evaluator in Transport Area in Logistics etc.) in urban development.
B.2. Understanding of exchange and learning processes at transnational level: 
After the development of the CiViNET Spain and Portugal Network, created by me, which holds more than 30 Spanish and Portuguese Cities, some of the tasks I was implementing moved from local to national and international level, being the representative in several working groups in different topics (mainly in Mobility and Transports and mainly in Spain but also Europe), giving the vision of the cities. Because of the network, I could spread the messages received at local level in European Platforms, with Policy Reports agreed with local politicians. I could manage to promote the participation of more than 20 cities in different reports. I consider them helpful and useful, as the guidelines produced promoted the knowledge and know-how sharing and the capitalization of results of good practices and activities. The Guidelines have supported the cities to produce Ordinances and Normative at local level. Apart from the workshops and courses organized by me according to the European projects, I´ve been organizing more than 12 workshops for cities and 6 national Forums focused on different topics with an average attendance of 75-100 people each.
B2. Assessment: 
1: The candidate demonstrates convincing proof of his understanding of exchange and learning processes at transnational level (e.g. organization of international workshops, courses and sharing paltforms within the CiViNET network).
B.3. Proficiency in English: 
Cambridge level: Proficiency 58/100 National School of Languages: Finished 8/10
B3. Assessment: 
1: The candidate points to convincing evidence of his proficiency in English (e.g. he refers to a CPE - Certificate of Proficiency in English by Cambridge). Despite some minor grammar mistakes in his application form, his English level is good.

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

C.3.1. Ability to communicate complex concepts to non-English speakers: 
The CiViNET project, in which I was the European project coordinator, was focused on sharing the best experiences, knowledge and know-how from other European cities and projects at local level and vice versa, from a local vision to a European statement and policies, with an aim of the capitalization of all the knowledge. The initiative was very successful, and the EC funded a continuation. From that moment, I managed to produce Policy Documents, Workshops, Seminars, Webinars, Site visits and constant communication and information to the members, including not only good practices and knowledge sharing in mobility but also opportunities for funding, which were very welcome as normally cities are lost in this area. At local level, meetings, presentations, videos… have been produce in order to share experience and knowledge, apart from paper or e- newsletters, websites, blogs… for the 12 projects I managed the past years. In all the 12 projects, as I had the role of dissemination manager, I actively contributed to the general websites, social networks or blogs. At local level, I created websites, blogs or e-newsletters. Concretely for the PTP-Cycle the blog was especially successful as well as the social networks (600 followers in Facebook for a very concrete topic). Also in the Champ project, SmartMove or the CiViNET Network web-section (the most visited out of all sections in the CiViTAS website).
C3.1 Assessment: 
1: The candidate points to valid examples of how he is able to communicate complex concepts to non-English speakers. He provides examples of supports used for communication (presentations, videos, blogs and e-newsletters).
C.3.2. Ability to draw out, support the verbalization and documentation of knowledge and practice from participants: 
In the projects I have participated I could organize all type of meetings with the local stakeholders. Not only in my city, that, to give an example, in the CiViTAS project (2005-2009) I organized more than 60 meetings with different stakeholder (especially in very conflictive areas such as pedestrianization process or implementation of a new public transport scheme). As it is a very important part in processes in the mobility area, I have attended several workshops about stakeholders and how to involve them in the projects, and I had the chance to practice within my projects. For the mentioned project, and for other projects, I organized different ways to communicate with the stakeholders, mainly with dynamic process of participation. Also nowadays is possible to implement participation process through internet, or even more informal through social networks, only possible to trust up to some extent, but interesting as well. Thanks to the CiViNET project I had the opportunity to work with other stakeholders in other cities, which was even more exciting as they could see me as an external supporter, and I wanted to have the change of organizing win-win strategies with them. Especially interesting and fulfillment was the organization of local meetings to create the Slovenian and Croatian CiViNET Network, where it was necessary apart from involve them, to be as fair and as politically correct as possible.
C3.2 Assessment: 
0: The candidate provided less than one specific example that demonstrates ability to draw out, support the verbalization and documentation of knowledge and practice from participants.
C.3.3. Ability to capture learning for participants to take away: 
In every project I have been involved, the capitalization of the results, as well as the take-up activities, have been very important. In every IEE project it has been organized a National workshop, and it has been necessary to pick follower cities in order to transfer the knowledge, which has been also shown in final results leaflets and guidelines. The transnational aspects of the European projects made this easy, as finally not only the participating cities and partners gain knowledge, but many follower cities and entities, which is normally one of the important goals of the projects. Based in my experience, it is important to produce a capitalization of results or knowledge sharing plan since the beginning of the project, as it is necessary to foreseen congresses or meetings to attend and anticipate the possible different stakeholders to engage and at what level. The framework for technicians is different than the politicians or the policy-makers.
C3.3 Assessment: 
1: The applicant points to more than one valid example of capturing learning for participants to take away (e.g. final results leaflets, guidelines and knowledge sharing plans).
C.3.4. Ability to produce concise reports that incorporate good practices and policy messages: 
Through the CiViNET Spain and Portugal Network, four policy documents have been produced: “Electric Vehicle position of the Spanish and Portuguese Cities” signed in Murcia, 2012, “Smart Cities and Mobility”, Santander, 2013, “Intelligent Transportation Systems in Cities”, Alcobendas, 2014 and “Cities and the Bike”, Málaga, 2015. Prior to these Documents and during all these past years, in the Political meetings, organized as well by me, recommendations to European Documents and Papers have been produced with the input of all the cities involved.
C3.4 Assessment: 
1: The candidate provides convincing examples demonstrating his ability to produce concise reports that incorporate good practices and policy messages (e.g. four specific policy documents produced through the CiViNET Spain and Portugal Network).
Assessment: 
The candidate does not meet the criteria for C1 (with a score 2 out of 3) and C2 (with a score 1 out of 4) and therefore, he should not be validated for expertise for the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities. More than 12 Workshops, Site Visits and Training Courses organized and six local Forums organized under the umbrella of the CiViNET Spain and Portugal Network. Participation in more than 50 workshops and Six Papaers produced about different topics in Sustainable Urban Mobility.

Thematic expertise:

Theme / Policy: 
Sustainable Urban Mobility
D.1. Deep knowledge on the selected theme and related policy challenges, including up to date practice, research, etc.: 
Apart from the experience already mention, and the educational background in Industrial Engineer and Master Doctorate Courses in Logistic, Transport and Management, I finished recently my PhD (October) focusing on sustainable urban mobility, titled “A new cost-effectiveness methodology to asses Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). Application to the City of Burgos (Spain).” Monitored by Dr. López-Lambas (Polytechnic University of Madrid) and Dr. Gonzalo-Orden (University of Burgos). The topic is about the evaluation of SUMPs in cities with a methodology based on the Kyoto Protocol strategy of CO2 emissions saving and carbon footprint calculation. My experience is based on more than 12 years of experience in project management about sustainable development at local level, mainly urban sustainable mobility, but also other topics such as energy, environment, sustainable land use or city planning. During these years I have managed more than 12 European projects focused on these topics, and also working on the URBAN project of the city of Burgos, and other Structural Funds projects. In all of them with the participation of stakeholders, organizing the meetings and the process of public participation. In several of them, as well, I took the role of dissemination leader and evaluator leader at local level or project level. I had experience in teaching and research for more than 12 years as well, being teacher in different Master Degrees and Courses in Madrid and Burgos, and part-time teacher in the University of Burgos. During the past years, in my role of independent expert, I have been advising other cities in terms of development and management of European projects within the CiViNET Spain and Portugal Network managed by me.

D2 Assessment: 
1: The candidate provides more than two valid examples of thematic inputs used to feed in the learning process of projects in which the candidate has been involved. However, there are some examples that are not related to the theme.
D.3. Ability to produce concise reports that incorporate learning from exchange & learning activities, put forward good practice: 
Because of the local level work, I had experience in the participation processes and involvement of stakeholders, the urban development funds (URBAN, 6th Framework Program, 7th Framework Program, Horizon 2020, Interreg IV regio and capitalization, Life, Interreg SUDOE, Intelligent Energy Europe and directly from DG MOVE) management and social innovation, when management of projects in terms of research and development. Because of the projects, I had to manage public procurement. Regarding the work in the CiViNET Network, I had to deal with the multi-level governance issues (local-national and European), having successfully presented initiatives at local level to be included in Policy reports at European level, as the Statement of Funchal in the CiViTAS initiative, for example, a European Document about sustainable mobility, which includes the feed-back from our network. I took the role of moderator in several roundtables regarding different aspects, especially in political and technical meetings, firstly in Spanish and Portuguese area (because of my role of Coordinator of the CiViNET Spain and Portugal Network) but also in other moments: CiViTAS Forum in Krakow (2009) when I moderated a roundtable about sustainable mobility in Europe with representatives of the old and new member states politicians, representatives from the European Commission and other stakeholders, and in the CiViTAS Forum in Vitoria-Gasteiz (2012) when I moderated the roundtable of the Political Committee with more than 30 politicians from all Europe and representatives from the EC. One of my tasks in the CiViNET Network is to produce documents at national level to be used, in principle, at local level, but to transmit local level concerns or proposals to national and European level. Through the CiViNET Spain and Portugal Network, four policy documents have been produced: “Electric Vehicle position of the Spanish and Portuguese Cities” signed in Murcia, 2012, “Smart Cities and Mobility”, Santander, 2013, “Intelligent Transportation Systems in Cities”, Alcobendas, 2014 and “Cities and the Bike”, Málaga, 2015. Prior to these Documents and during all these past years, in the Political meetings, organized as well by me, recommendations to European Documents and Papers have been produced with the input of all the cities involved. Apart from that, I inform to the cities about project calls and explain the European framework and how to benefit from European funds.
D3 Assessment: 
1: The candidate provides more than two valid examples of reports that incorporate learning from exchange & learning activities, put forward good practice (e.g. four policy documents produced through the CiViNET Network). However, there are some examples that are not related to the theme.
D.4. Understanding of how to maximize the use of project results for benefits in capitalization, policy design, awarenes: 
From the point of view of the projects I participated, I produce all kind of guidance in dissemination, evaluation and management plans; apart from support the cities from all Europe in these tasks on a daily basis. One of the most important points, in my opinion, in the European projects, is to follow a scheme, which can be changed, as a little bit of flexibility is also important but always within reasonable limits. Maybe that is why is important as well to produce documents with risks and alternative solutions. It is important to fix dates to produce deliverables or milestones. In terms of dissemination, for example, it is important to have a time line and to follow the rules the entity (ERDF, EC, EASME…), always respecting the right use of the logo and the visible sentences. Also important to fix goals in terms of workshops organized, number of people engaged in the different activities of the transferability of the activities if this is the case. In terms of evaluation, it is important to agree since the very beginning the indicators to use, and start with the process of obtaining them since the beginning of the project, not leaving for a later moment as it could be too late. I have been supporting cities at national level (Spain and Portugal) in the development of proposals, as it was one of my tasks in the Network. every project I have been involved, the capitalization of the results, as well as the take-up activities, have been very important. In every IEE project it has been organized a National workshop, and it has been necessary to pick follower cities in order to transfer the knowledge, which has been also shown in final results leaflets and guidelines. The transnational aspects of the European projects made this easy, as finally not only the participating cities and partners gain knowledge, but many follower cities and entities, which is normally one of the important goals of the projects. Based in my experience, it is important to produce a capitalization of results or knowledge sharing plan since the beginning of the project, as it is necessary to foreseen congresses or meetings to attend and anticipate the possible different stakeholders to engage and at what level.

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 : 
Because of the local level work, I had experience in the participation processes and involvement of stakeholders, the urban development funds (URBAN, 6th Framework Program, 7th Framework Program, Horizon 2020, Interreg IV regio and capitalization, Life, Interreg SUDOE, Intelligent Energy Europe and directly from DG MOVE) management and social innovation, when management of projects in terms of research and development. Because of the projects, I had to manage public procurement. Regarding the work in the CiViNET Network, I had to deal with the multi-level governance issues (local-national and European), having successfully presented initiatives at local level to be included in Policy reports at European level, as the Statement of Funchal in the CiViTAS initiative, for example, a European Document about sustainable mobility, which includes the feed-back from our network. I took the role of moderator in several roundtables regarding different aspects, in political and technical meetings, firstly in Spanish and Portuguese area (because of my role of Coordinator of the CiViNET Spain and Portugal Network) but also in other moments: CiViTAS Forum in Krakow (2009) when I moderated a roundtable about sustainable mobility in Europe with representatives of the old and new member states politicians, representatives from the European Commission and other stakeholders, in the CiViTAS Forum in Vitoria-Gasteiz (2012) when I moderated the roundtable of the Political Committe
E.1 Assessment: 
0: The candidate points to examples of participation in events such as the CiViTAS Forums in Krakow and Vitoria-Gasteiz but he does not provide examples that refer to specific participatory methods or tools for co-production and implementation of local polices.
E.2. Knowledge on integrated approach for the design, delivering, monitoring and evaluation of urban strategies/policies: 
The projects I coordinated and managed are: Coordinator local level of CiViTAS Caravel Project (6th FP). Disseminator local Manager. Implementation of several urban sustainable mobility measures. Coordinator local level SUMOBIS (Interreg SUDOE). Disseminator Manager at local and project level. Actions regarding the promotion of the use of the bike, industrial areas mobility and car-sharing initiatives. Coordinator local level SAMERU (DG MOVE). Dissemination local Manager. Studies and training actions about mobility in elderly people. Coordinator local level Niches + as Champion City (7th FP). Burgos developed two actions: one in vertical accessibility and another in promotion of the Public Transport in children. Coordinator European level CiViNET (DG MOVE). Creation of national networks for sharing of knowledge and dissemination of good practices. Coordinator local level SUSREG (IEE). Dissemination and Evaluation local Manager. Studies and actions about sustainable land use and planning. Coordinator local level POSSE (Interreg IV C Regio). Dissemination local and national Manager. Development of studies and guidelines about ITS and Open Data and Standardization in ITS in cities. Coordinator local level CHAMP (IEE). Dissemination and Evaluation local Manager.

Apart from those projects, collaboration in the development of Hydrosolar (Life), URBAN project in the City of Burgos, and other regional or national projects, related to infrastructures, entrepreneurship, urban development and industrial development in the City of Burgos. In all of them the capitalization and dissemination has been one of the keys, especially as I´ve been involved as dissemination manager. This explains the high number of presentations and events I attended the past 12 years.
E.2 Assessment: 
0: The list provided by the applicant makes no mention of an integrated approach for the design, delivering, monitoring and evaluation of urban strategies/policies.
E.3. Awareness of the main policy and funding schemes for sustainable urban development at EU and national level: 
Apart from the projects I have worked, including the Urban, I´ve been attending several meetings of presentation of initiatives and calls, in Brussels at European level and National level (Operational Programmes) in Madrid in the Ministries. The main evidence of my knowledge and understanding is the high degree of success in terms of financial and technical reports, as in any project the partner I was working with had major problems, including the good marks received by the Audit Report done by the Spanish Ministry of Public Administration related to ERDF funds in POSSE (Interreg IV-C), where we were located in Category “A” in terms of internal organization and transparency of procedures, and no fund was claimed. I organized for the projects the schedule and scheme of audits, reports, different level controllers… having successfully managed all of them.
E.3 Assessment: 
1: The candidate demonstrates a good awareness of the main policy and funding schemes for sustainable urban development at EU and national level (e.g. attendance of meetings of presentation of initiatives and calls).
E.4. Ability to understand specific local situations and adapt tools and content to different local realities: 
The Network I created, very lively with 30 participating cities, have been focused on precisely the interchange of knowledge through different events, site visits or presentations so I have the ability to organize interesting activities for cities that they want to learn, managing the little resources the Network counts with (only a part of the total budget is funded), by means of the collaboration of the different cities to develop the events, and counting with the involvement at policy and technical level. During the past years, the events, presentations and activities I organized, focused on the knowledge and experience sharing, have been focused at the end to politicians and technicians of the cities, which then they will develop or implement the measures or actions or they will produce Ordinances or Normative at local level. My work has been focusing on this concrete point: firstly, how to make attractive the network I managed in order politicians and technicians want to participate and being actively involved, secondly, to think a message I think is important or interesting for the cities if they want to move to a more sustainable city (and citizens will see the quality of life is better and consequently, they will prefer a “green” city) and thirdly, how to present these messages in order they can easily understand, they do not get bored and it is so attractive that they want to develop or implement a similar measure or normative in their own cities. In that way to success it is important a reflection on what is more important, more engaged and more interesting for the cities based on good experiences, knowledge or reflections on how to implement measures or produce documents but at the same time trying to present it attractively and in a dynamic way. Other way to engage them is to count with other politicians (local, national or European level) that they are concerned as well, as this is a point to attract local politicians. Firstly, in the process of preparation of the different events and activities I organized, it was obviously necessary to ask for the need of the capacity-building. Every year theses needs are treated and discussed, normally in events, where politicians and technicians can discuss their problems. Also in many occasions it is interesting (and important) to ask for concrete needs. The feed-back is organized by me and sent to them again to reflect on what is more important to finally organize the events and activities based on their needs. In the different stages I have explained in the last section, apart from thinking about the message and how to transfer it in the best possible way, before this stage I always have the feedback of the cities about their needs. There is a point of subjectivity as I also worked for a City and I know first-hand their needs and problems, but normally after years of experience I am at least partly right (in each city conditions are different). In terms of measuring the results, apart from the typical evaluation test about the degree of satisfaction, it is important to remark and to take into account other aspects as number of measures implemented thanks to the knowledge or experience gained, number of normative produced or even number of attendees of the different events, as if they think it is important and crucial for their municipalities, they will implement as many measures and produce as many Ordinances as possible, and they will attend the events to be organized in the future.
E.4 Assessment: 
0: The candidate provides less than one specific example that demonstrates ability to understand specific local situations and adapt tools and content to different local realities.
Assessment: 
The candidate meets 1 out of the 4 criteria regarding expertise support to local authorities and other stakeholders in designing and delivering integrated and participatory policies and therefore should not be validated for E. I had the chance to work with local stakeholders in participation process because of the projects I managed, at national but also at local level. Because of the Network I manage (CiViNET Spain and Portugal) I had to translate European Papers and initiatives to local environments. My experience covers so, local to European stakeholders’ process of involvement.
