IdeaLab project: Fostering entrepreneurship and open innovation among students in University industry collaboration.
Jon García – University of the Basque Country – EHU
Jon Garcia obtained in 2013 his degree in Chemical Engineering in the School of Engineering in Bilbao (UPV – EHU) with a double degree at the University of Cranfield (UK), where he did a Master in Management and Waste Treatment.
After a stay in the Telios Onlus Foundation in Turin (Italy), he was incorporated in January 2015 in the Environmental Engineering area at Technical Research Center – CEIT (Bilbao). Currently he is conducting doctoral around the recovery of volatile fatty acids (VFA) from sludge and industrial waste water.
European project “SARASWATI, Supporting consolidation, replication and up-scaling of sustainable wastewater treatment and reuse technologies for India”. (Project supported by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme Grant Number 308672 and the Department for Science and Technology, Government of India).
Dr. Miguel Valls – University of Almeria
He will present the Startify7 project is a two-year project that started on 1st of January 2015. The core challenge for STARTIFY7 is to connect with existing ICT enterprise training structures through our 7 thematic learning academies which will combine lean start-up training with team-building for young people.
The Startify7 project is run by a consortium of 11 partners: The University of Sheffield, Associazione Trento RISE, Friederich-Alexander University, University of Almeria, South East European Research Center, University of Twente, University of Economics in Katowice, European Confederation of Young Entrepreneurs, UnternehmerTUM GmbH, Europe Unlimited SA, i4G.
José Gabriel Martín – Acciona Microenergía Foundation
He began his career 13 years ago in the consulting firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers, specializing in the energy sector. In 2007 he joined ACCIONA in the Department of Strategic Analysis and R&D, developing projects to create new business models and technology transfer. Since 2012 he works as a project manager in the ACCIONA Microenergía Foundation. Its scope of work includes access to energy for isolated rural communities, ranging from the design, implementation and operation of projects with a long-term approach and sustainability. Currently he supports and coordinates the daily activity of ACCIONA Microenergía Peru and Mexico (www.accioname.org). ACCIONA Microenergía Peru operates in the Department of Cajamarca (Peru) since 2009 and ACCIONA Microenergía Mexico began operations in 2012. Through the Foundation both social enterprises ACCIONA Microenergía facilitates access to basic electricity to about 50,000 people from Peru and Mexico.
He is a chemical engineer from the University of Salamanca, Master in Renewable Energy and Energy Sector by the School of Industrial Organization (EOI) of Madrid and Executive MBA from the same institution.

Dr Diego Alarcón – Plataforma Solar de Almería (CIEMAT)
Dr. Diego-César Alarcón-Padilla has a PhD from the University of La Laguna and a degree in Physics by the University of Granada. Since 1994 his research activity is linked to the Plataforma Solar de Almería (Spain), working in different activity areas related with the use of concentrated solar radiation for electricity production. From 2001, it belongs to the Solar Desalination Unit (from which he is the current responsible), focusing his activity in the research of the use of solar thermal energy in brackish and seawater desalination.
He has participated in several research and development projects, at national and international level. He is co-author of four books and four chapter books, co-author of more than 47 publications in peer-reviewed international journals, 10 publications in technical magazines, and more than 75 contributions to international and national conferences. He has also participated as teacher in several courses related to water treatment and solar energy.
He is the current Operating Agent of IEA SolarPACES Task VI (Solar Energy and Water Processes and Applications) and the coordinator of Subprogram IV (Concentrated Solar Power and Desalination) within the Concentrated Solar Power Joint Program of EERA (European Energy Research Alliance)
The RED-Heat-to-Power Project (“Conversion of Low Grade Heat to Power through closed loop Reverse Electro-Dialysis”) has been funded by the programme Horizon 2020, within the call H2020-LCE-2014-2015 “Call for Competitive Low-Carbon Energy”, Topic H2020-LCE-2014-1: “New knowledge and technologies”. It is coordinated by the German company WIP (Wirtschaft und Infrastruktur GmbH & Co Planungs-KG) and CIEMAT-PSA is between the partners of the Project. Other five partners from several EU countries are also participating: Università degli Studi di Palermo (Italia), Fujifilm Manufacturing Europe B.V. (The Netherlands), REDstack B.V. (The Netherlands), University of Edinburgh (United Kingdom) y Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (Spain). RED-Heat-to-Power started on 1st May 2015, and it will last four years, being funded by the EC with near four million Euro.
