Three tales of smart regional specialization: the case of wind energy in Spain
Reflexive governance and action research for local renewable energy policy in Spain
Innovation in process of policy design by reflexive governance and action research. The case of renewable energy policy in Pobla de Vallbona
The presentation aims to analyse the interaction experience of a multidisciplinary team in the formulation process of the renewable energy local normative. A set of different elements on the formulation process and the content of the normative will be analysed by exploring the concept of reflexive governance. For doing so, focus will be put in the search of agreement and consensus by considering different interpretation of innovation polices as public procurement for R&D and green procurement as well as more general concepts as governance, participation and decision making mechanisms. Finally key issues of action research approach will be described in term of the the role of local environments on the generation, exchange and knowledge transfer as key drivers for the design and implementation of environmental regulation.
The presentation is based in the participation of the authors in the project Mediterranean renewables energy ENERMED. The project seeks to bring coherence to Mediterranean regional policies on renewable energy for innovation and competitiveness. Our skills will contribute to understanding.

OLKC 2012 International conference on organizational learning, knowledge and capabilities
Valencia 25/27 April 2012
This Paper was developed as part of the PICK ME project. It was the first exercise on discourse analysis by using Atlas.ti software. We have explored the discussion bettwen scientist, entrepreneurs and government official coming from a debate on system of innovation.
Methodologically, we applied interpretative repertoire to track the connection between different ideas and value systems. The paper reveals some interesting insight on the culture of innovation and the rationale behind the use of policy instruments to foster innovation but especially at regional level

Policies for shaping consumption patterns on energy efficiency
Innovations for sustainability: policy opportunities focused on shaping consumption patterns on energy efficiency
1st Valencian Workshop on Efficiency and Productivity
Valencia 7 – 8 October 2010
This paper was based in one essay from my Msc in SPRU. It is my first attempt to explore the process of diffusion of environmental innovations by focusing in a portfolio of environmental policies. I have applied the concept of eco-innovation to improve the understanding the different ways to influence determinants of consumption pattern but empirically I applied the case of huge US policy portfolio. It was a revealing exercise on policy studies at early stages of my Dphil project.
Diversity, complexity and resiliency for sustainable transport systems
Diversidad, complejidad y transporte sustentable. ¿Qué factores e interacciones determinan un sistema resiliente?
XV Congreso Latinoamericano de Transporte Público y Urbano.
Buenos Aires, Argentina, 31 March – 3 de April 2009
This paper was based in one essay from my Msc in SPRU. I got fascinated with the definition of diversity explained by Andy Stirling and I tried to reframe my old ideas on transport system from a new socio technical point of view. It was my first paper in an international conference but also my first time explaining European approaches back In Argentina. Just small ideas and big experiences.
