Alfonso Carlosena obtained a degree in Physical Sciences with honors and a PhD from the University of Zaragoza in 1985 and 1989, respectively. From 1986 to 1992 he was Assistant Professor at the University of Zaragoza in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. In October 1992 he joined the Public University of Navarre, first as an interim (tenure track) professor and then as a civil servant (profesor) in 1993. In March 2000 he was promoted to Full Professor in the Area of Signal Theory and Communications. His has taught in both universities, in the first case with students of Physics and Industrial Engineering, and in the second with Telecommunications Engineering.
He has also been a postdoctoral researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH-Zurich) for two semesters (1999-90 and 1991-1992), visiting professor at the New Mexico State University (Las Cruces, NM) from June to August 1999, also enjoying a sabbatical stay (2004-2005) at the Connection One Center of the Arizona State University (Tempe, AZ)
He has been a principal researcher or participated in a large number of competitive projects funded by the Government of Navarre, the Spanish Research Agency and European Programs. As an outcome, he is the author or co-author of over 150 scientific papers in indexed international journals and has attended and presented communications in a similar number of conferences in the areas of Microelectronics, Instrumentation and Signal Processing. He has supervised 12 doctoral theses already presented. He has been awarded five research “sexenios” and one in technology transfer by the Spanish Quality Agency (this is the maximum possible). He is included in the group of the 2% most referenced researchers in the world (Harvard Classification)
He has dedicated efforts to the transfer activity with companies, participating in or supervising Research and Development contracts for various companies, as well as collaborative projects. He has been principal researcher in projects with the companies Azkoyen (5 years), Nacesa-Piher (3 years), Seiko Epson (2 years), Acciona Windpower (2 years), GM Vending (2 years), Aldakin (2 years) . As a result of this activity, he is the author of 5 patents, 3 of them in exploitation.
Regarding university management, he has been Rector at the Public University of Navarre from June 2015 to June 2019, having also held the position of Vice-Rector for Research in the two previous terms from 2007 to 2015. He was also director of the UPNa Research Transfer Office (OTRI) (1995-1999) and President of the Doctoral Commission (2000-2001). He has participated in two statutory commissions, 2003 and 2010, as member and president respectively. By virtue of his positions, he has also been a member of the Steering Committee of the RIS3 in Navarra, and of its predecessor the "Modern Plan" (Regional Development Model of Navarra) in the period 2009 to 2019.
He has been a member of different teaching and research evaluation boards in ANECA, Andalusian Agency and UNIBASQ, also carrying out evaluations for many other national and foreign entities.
Dr. Jesús Villadangos Alonso, Graduated with a Degree in Physical Sciences from the University of the Basque Country (1991), obtained a Doctorate in Telecommunications Engineering in 1998 from the Public University of Navarra. COMETT fellow at CIM-Fabrik Hannover (Germany) and researcher at the IFW (Institut für Fertigungstechnik und Werkzeugmaschinen) of the Universität Hannover from 1992 to 1994.

Angela was born in Milan (Italy). She completed her bachelor's degree in mathematics at Sapienza University of Rome, before earning her PhD in applied mathematics at the University of Navarra (Spain) in 2005, working on the simulation of Hele-Shaw cells. She continued her scientific studies with two postdoctoral stays at the INRIA and the CNRS (France), developing a new discontinuous Galerkin method for wave phenomena. In 2008 she returned in Navarra and started working at CITEAN, solving complex engineering problems through soft computing techniques. At the same time, she was visiting professor at the UPNA in Department of mathematics and Computer Engineering. In 2012 she joins CEMITEC, the multidisciplinary centre of technologies for Industry, as research specialist in computational methods and data modelling. From 2018 she coordinates the Artificial intelligence and Data Analytics Area at NAITEC, where she develops computer vision and data-driven based solution for the industrial sector. She is assistant professor at the UPNA in the Department of Statistics, Informatics and Mathematics and member of the Artificial Intelligence and Approximate reasoning group (GIARA).
