Pedro J. Rodríguez Cantó received his Ph.D. from the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany) in 2006. His thesis was based on understanding the acid reaction and diffusion in chemically amplified photoresists in lithography at the molecular level, and it was developed as a collaboration project with the company Infineon Technologies AG. During 4 years, he was working as R&D Manager at Intenanomat S.L. and was the coordinator of the project OHMIO (H2020 SME Instrument, Phase 1), which aims at the development of a novel class of flexible and highly transparent conducting polymers (Ohmidot™) for several applications. He has also participated in several European projects. He has published more than 45 scientific articles and is co-author of two patents. Recently, he earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Cerem Business School. His research activities are focused on the development of new nanomaterials including different types of nanoparticles (metallic, semiconducting, magnetic, metal oxides and others), functional nanoinks, hybrid nanocomposites based on polymers or metal oxides as host matrices, and novel conducting polymers for applications in optoelectronics, chemo and bio-sensing, and biotechnology (cosmetics, nanomedicine).

Carlos FitoR&D Manager
MsC in Occupational Risk Prevention specialized in Occupational Safety, Industrial Hygiene, and Ergonomics and Applied Psychosociology and the MsC in Environmental Health from Menendez Pelayo International University. His background is completed with a Diploma in Advanced Studies in Marine Biology and a Degree in Biology from the University of Valencia. During his career, Carlos has acquired extensive experience, both as coordinator of R&D projects focused on the study of nanoparticles (NanoMICEX, REACHNano, NanoRISK, NanoMonitor, NanoDESK…) and as an expert in risk management. This risk control includes experience in human and environmental toxicology and occupational and environmental exposure. The knowledge of all these risks has allowed him to become a consultant for the REACH regulation and participate in training and participation services for the implementation of nanomaterials safe use protocols.
