Dementia is one of the most prevalent and burdensome diseases in older age. By the year 2030, estimates suggest that there will be 74.7 million people with different forms of dementia worldwide. There is no cure for dementia: drugs only address the symptoms of the disease and non-pharmaceutical interventions are continuously tested and updated to improve patients’ quality of life: from interventions to increase of communication skills, agitation and stress reduction, and use of new technology.

The value of disseminating evidence on these interventions is immeasurable, but surprisingly this knowledge is often not available to care staff.

The iDO project aims at diminishing this existing gap by designing and developing an effective training package in close collaboration with people with dementia and their caregivers in hopes that this will promote the acquisition of skills by direct-care workers. This will be achieved by conducting different interviews with caregivers, patients, but also health professionals and then transforming it into an online massive course. The project will also develop and include a serious-game where people will be able to apply their gained knowledge on the different topics related with dementia.

I'm currently Professor at the Computer Eng. Dep. of the Engineering School of the Porto Polytechnic (ISEP). I'm also Director of Virtual Campus Lda, an SME dedicated to Technology Enhanced Learning and Serious Games.

I have a PhD (2001) in Technologies and Information Systems from the University of Minho, focusing in the use of e-learning in Higher Education.

As professor, I've lectured more than 20 different courses on Algorithms, Programming, Data Structures, E-Learning and Multimedia. Currently I'm lecturing Serious Games Design and Development and Multimedia Application Development. I was responsible for planning and developing the syllabuses and materials for most of these courses.

I started my research career in 1988 at INESC in the Computer Graphics Group. In 1996, I focused in Technology Enhanced Learning while doing my PhD at the University of Minho. From 2005 to 2014, I was Scientific Coordinator of GILT R&D (Games, Interaction and Learning Technologies). I've directed eight PhD and 40 MSc theses and authored over 200 publications and communications, including more than ten books (as author and editor). I coordinated 16 national and European projects and participated in more than 20 other projects. I worked as an expert for the European Commission and associated agencies in the scope of the Socrates-ODL, Minerva, E-Learning, E-Contents Plus, Lifelong Learning and Erasmus+ programmes.

On the management side, I directed the Distance Education Unit of the Porto Polytechnic from 1997 until 2000. From 2001 until 2005 I was E-Learning Director of ISEP and served as Dean of the Computer Eng. Dep. between 2003 and 2005. Between 2011 and 2013 I was President of the Portuguese Chapter of the IEEE Education Society.

Currently, I'm directing a company dedicated to the production of Serious Games and Technology-based Educational contents and applications.

Academic Training: Industrial Engineer in Chemistry UPC (1986). Master in Quality Assessment (1991). Master in Leather engineering UPC (2012). Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering UPC (2014). My scientific and technical professional background has developed in different fields following parallel to my career. As a product engineer, responsible on the development and production of PU foams for application in the automotive industry allowed me to deepen the study of the chemistry of polymers, especially polyurethane. As head of R+D+i, control laboratory and quality management in the sector of synthetic fibers, allowed me to acquire significant experience in managing research projects, also in the polymerization processes polyester and transformation in textile fibers.

Since 2009, firstly at AIICA (Research Association of Leather Industries and Annexes) and since 2012 at Chair A3 in Leather Innovation (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya), and currently at A3 Leather Innovation Center (Universidad de Lleida) my activities are focused on the field of research, as Researcher and R&D Project Manager at national and European level. I am currently responsible for managing research and development of R&D projects in collaboration with companies at A3 Center of Universidad de Lleida, also conducting technology transfer activities, networking and technology watch. Among other areas I have participated in R&D activities in NMP (Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, materials & new production technologies) and Environmental sustainability as a researcher in the area of new materials in the field of leather and textile and also in for preventive strategies to mitigate Climate Change. My area of current research is new sustainable materials from waste from the forestry, food, tannery and textile industry, improving the sustainability and boosting the circular economy objectives.

Doctor in Chemical Sciences from the University of Barcelona (2005). Chemical Industrial Technical Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia in 1994, in 2003 I obtained the title of Engineering in Industrial Organization from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and a Master's degree in technical management of tanning in 2001.

My teaching-research career is developed in three areas of work: The teaching, preparing students from more than 40 different countries for the chemical industry and tannery. I have published four specialized tannery textbooks. To improve teaching quality today, I have incorporated the Flipped classroom methodology. In September 2012 I obtained the Advanced Research Accreditation. I have been director of the Master's program in Tannery Technical Management from 2005 to 2018, deputy director of the Igualada School of Engineering (UPC) from 2008 to 2010, director of the Igualada School of Engineering (UPC) since 2010 until 2018 and from September 2008 to 2018 I have been coordinator of the Official Master's Degree Program in Leather Engineering. From September 2018 to September 2020 I have been deputy director of the Higher Polytechnic School of the University of Lleida.

The second area, that of research, developing new processes to improve the sustainability of the leather tanning and finishing process.

Since 2012 I am the director of the research group A3 in Leather Innovation Center, a consolidated group recognized by AGAUR (2017SGR 1367) and developer of public technology with Tecnio accreditation; with 9 hiring of research personnel, two scholarship holders and 7 PDI. I have participated as a researcher in 35 national and EU competitive R&D projects, of which 21 as IP. Currently, I am participatingas principal inv estigator in 10 approved projects, 1 in the RIS3CAT call, 1 in the AGAUR Llavor call, 4 at the national level (in the CDTI calls, Collaboration Challenges, and CIEN Strategic Program) and 4 at the international level (in the H2020, Eurostars, Manunet and Innoglobal calls). From this research, 80 articles have been published in indexed journals. I have also co-directed 7 doctoral theses at the UPC, 1 at the University of Camerino (Italy), 1 at the UdL, and currently I am directing three at the UdL. I am also directing an industrial doctoral thesis with a grant of 33,000 from AGAUR. I have three six-year research periods (2002-2007, 2008-2013 and 2014-2020).

The third area of work is technology transfer. My technological offer is specialized in the development of innovation projects and technology transfer by the different companies in the value chain of the leather sector (slaughterhouses, tanneries, manufacturing companies, chemical companies, waste treatment). I have developed an innovative technology to obtain a tannin extract from wine byproducts (grape seeds) that can be applied to leather tanning. The technology is currently patented and is in the licensing phase (WO2017/203429A1).
