I wanted to congratulate Javier Prieto, who has successfully become the fourth researcher in the programa de atracción del talento (talent recruitment program) launched by Salamanca’s City Council.

This initiative will allot 2,5 millions of euros to research projects in the next three years. At this call, our colleague is going to initiate his “Chromosone” project, and will develop it together with our BISITE Research Group.

Javier holds a PhD in Information Technology and Telecommunications from the University of Valladolid and he has been collaborating with us since years. The project he is now working on studies human behaviour related to energy consumption in homes. Its objective is to reduce costs, increase comfort and create more sustainable environments. He will use services based on the Internet of Things (IoT) and an automated infrastructure which will reduce the consumption of energy and emissions by encouraging more efficient habits in users. The project employs social machines and creates smart contracts through blockchain, enabling intelligent interaction between humans and machines, whose goal is to improve the environments in which we live.

Our colleague is one of the researchers, Pablo García Jambrina, José Beltrán and Carlos Dionisio Pérez are already working on their projects in our city. Ainhoa Martínez will be the last one to join. A total of 133 submissions have been evaluated by a committee of experts, who selected those that will be part of the program.
