Nuria has a Masters of Industrial Engineering from the University of Valladolid, Spain. Researcher at CARTIF from 2002 to 2013, her first activity was focused on the development of projects about waste valuing with a circular economy approach. Nuria then specialized in assessing the environmental sustainability of solutions, applying Sustainable Management Tools, with experience in Life Cycle Assessment, eco-design and ecolabelling. During her research, she was coordinator of the Green-Car Eco-Design project, funded by INTERREG SUDOE.
For the last five years, she has been Deputy Manager of the Agrifood and Sustainable Processes Division. As a result, Nuria currently has little involvement in technical work, but is responsible for supporting project coordinators and ensuring highest-quality deliverables as ‘external’ reviewer. In this role, she assists the coordination of URBAN GREENUP, working closely with Raúl Sánchez, especially with project management.
