Part B. Free Summary of CV

Dr. Juan Daniel Prades García (Barcelona, 1982) is Doctor in Nanoscience (2



2009) by the University of Barcelona. His Ph.D Thesis, entitled 'Modelling of the Chemical 

and Light Interactions in Individual Metal Oxide Nanowires for Sensing Applications' and 

carried out under the supervision of Dr. Albert Cirera, was qualified cum laude and was 

awarded with the Honors Doctorate by the University of Barcelona.

In 2009, he started his postdoctoral activity in the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research 

(IREC), where he was hired as a postdoctoral researcher. This contract finished in 2010 

when he won a position as a Lecturer Professor for 5 years at the Department of Electronics 

of the University of Barcelona in public open competition. Since, December 2014, he is 

appointed as tenured Associate Professor at the same institution (Professor Agregat Serra 

Húnter). He has independently supervised 25 Degree and Master Theses, as well as 

Doctorate Theses (Dr. Carlos López Gandara, Dr. Núria García, Dr. Martin Hoffmann, Dr. 

Sergio Illera, Dr. Oriol Monereo). Currently, he personally supervises the work of 3 more 

Ph.D students.

Since 2007, he has published 80 articles in international, peer-reviewed, journals. 60 of 

these papers correspond to original, independent research activities carried out during his 

postdoctoral period. Overall, his published work has received more than 2000 citations and

Short CV

his h-index is currently 25 (source ISI WoK). Additionally, he has co-authored 10 book 

chapters and more than 200 contributions to conferences, with 20 invited talks in 

international conferences. He serves as regular reviewer for the Spanish, Germany, Swiss, 

Polish Science Foundations, as well as for the European Comission and a number of 

peer-reviewed specialized Journals.

Along his career he has participated in 7 European Projects and in more than 15 National 

Projects. As for the research management, he has been Principal Investigator in 5 R&D 

Contracts with the industry, device development, smart system integration and 

environmental monitoring, and in 4 Spanish Projects funded in competitive calls. He is also 

serving as coordinator in 4 European Projects: ERC Starting Grant (2014), ERC Proof of 

Concept (2016), FET Open (2017) and Eureka-Eurostars (2017). In his short career, he 

independently obtained and managed about 4.5M€ research funding.

In parallel, he has also carried out technology transfer activities with the industry, 

participating in 10 R&D contracts. He holds the co-authorship of 8 Patents, transferred and 

extended to several European countries. He has also funded 3 spin-off companies

“Electronic Nanosystems” (2008), awarded with the prestigious Solvay Prize 2008. Since 

2015, he participates in the foundation and development of a transnational start-up between 

Germany and Spain: “SuperLight Photonix”. Currently, he is initiating a new start-up project 

in Spain with “FoodSensing”, devoted to smart packaging for food processing efficiency, 

quality, and safety. His valorization and technology transfer activities have been recognized 

with the VALORTEC Prize of the Regional Government of Catalonia.

He has carried out 10 stays abroad (more than 1 month each) in laboratories all over 

Europe (Germany, Italy, France, Poland) with the support of competitive grants (Spanish: 

José Castillejos, ACCIÓ Mobilitat de Professorat; German: DAAD, Humboldt Foundation, 

Mercator Professorship, European: COST Action Grants, Marie Courie Short Stays). He 

carries out his research in close collaboration with the Braunschweig University of 

Technology (Germany), where he expends more than 20% of his working time, yearly. He is 

the EuroSensors Fellow 2017, the most prestigious award within the European community 

of academics and companies working on sensor technology.

As a member of the Department of Engineering: Electronics Division, he is ascribed to the 

Group of Micro-Nanotechnologies and Nanoscopies for Electron and Optoelectronic Devices 

(MIND), in which he leads the research in design, fabrication, and characterization of 

optoelectronic nanomaterials for energy efficient devices and sensors. The research of 

his current work-group, formed by 2 postdoctoral researchers and 4 Ph.D students.
