Sebastián Jiménez Reyes

Técnico Especializado

In 1997, I joined the High Altitude Observatory (NCAR) where I have the opportunity to carry out my PhD in the field of astrophysics. Later on, I enjoyed several postdoctoral research positions in different institutions in Europe participating in several national and international projects. I have published a total of 44 peer review articles and more than 53 contributions to different international congress. 

In 2007, I decided to jump to the research management, first as a member of the Technology Transfer Office at Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) and then as part of other research institutions. During these years, I acted as expert in the research-innovation interface, fostering and managing public-private collaborations, ensuring the correct IPR management as well as promoting the exploitation and dissemination of the research results.

At present, I work as Innovation Manager of  the Spanish Council Research Center (CSIC) with the main aim of accelerate the translation of experimental results and basic knowledge towards clinical applications, and to promote their transfer to end-users and industrial stakeholders.
