Curricular Synthesis of João C L Penha-LopesIntroductionI like to work in the area of organization information in terms ofidentifying and organizing the information but, as well, make sure thatthat information will flow among whoever has the need for it. In someorganizations the infrastructure is still the traditional one, in others I havebeen able to implement emerging technologies and their associatedbenefits in terms of the need for fewer resources to be spent.Basically I combine the principles of information archiving theories withthe available technologies to make sure that both integrate smoothly tothe benefit of the client.My academic life has provided me with the exact tools for that purpose:Engineering graduation (with integrated Master’s Degree), one Post-Graduation in Information and Document Sciences covering Archives, onePost-Graduation covering Libraries and I started in 2008 a PhD in the areaof Electronic Documents.My professional career shown briefly proves that I am used to manageteams and with deadlines and most of the times in areas where political orsocial “sensitivities” are to be dealt with.Although I am Portuguese I consider myself bilingual in English, since Iworked for many years with English companies. I also speak French andSpanishI will list the following milestones in my Academic and Professional career:
