Computer Science and Control Systems, he was appointed Director of the R&D Department at
the ITE (Institute for Technologies in Education) of the Ministry of Education & Science in
Spain and later on Head of the International Department of the CDTI (Centro para el Desarrollo
Tecnológico e Industrial).
He joined the European Commission in 1989 as Head of Division in Directorate-General "Information Society and
Media" responsible for the R&D Programme DELTA (Developing European Learning through Technological
Advance). He was acting Director in 2003 and 2004 of Directorate "Emerging Technologies, Infrastructures &
Applications". Domains of responsibility encompassed basic research (Future and Emerging Technologies), Grid
Technologies, Research Infrastructures and application areas related to eInclusion and eWork. End 2004 he was
appointed Head of the Unit "Networked Media Systems" and in 2010 Head of the Unit "Future Networks", where
he leads European R&D on mobile communications, optical networks, satellite communications and Internet
architectures. In 2009-2010 he was also acting Director of Directorate "Converged Networks & Services", which
addresses R&D and innovation on Future Internet (network architectures, communication technologies…), 35
