Sobre o palestrante
Dr. Urbano Díaz (1974) has been working as a CSIC Scientific Researcher at the Institute of Chemical Technology (ITQ) since 2004. He studied Chemical Sciences at the University of Valencia and obtained his doctorate in 2002 in the field of delaminated zeolites in the Polytechnic University of Valencia. He obtained a Marie Curie post-doctoral fellowship developed at EniTecnologie (Eni SpA) in Milan, Italy, working on catalytic applications of hybrid porous materials. In 2004, he returned to ITQ as a Scientist (CSIC), where he continues today, working in the field of multi-functional hybrid materials, lamellar solids, nanocomposites and biomaterials with catalytic and nanotechnological applications. He is the author of more than 75 publications and 11 application patents focused on different aspects of the chemistry of organic and inorganic materials. In addition, he has been principal investigator in regional, national and European projects (7thFP and H2020), as well as guarantor since 2013 of the Severo Ochoa distinction held by the ITQ. In 2010, he was awarded the 6th Idea Prize in New Technologies by the Generalitat Valenciana.
