About

Mario has PhD student in Management. His work is focuses on the discourses of innovation and development with a particular interest for emerging and developing countries. A graduate of University Federico II of Naples (MSc, 2005) in Electronic and Telecommunication engineering, at the beginning of his career he worked on the management and prevention of natural disasters in Developing Countries through remote sensing instruments and as telecommunication consultant. He spent two years in Bolivia working in the field of renewable energy for remote rural areas. During this period he had the opportunity to collaborate for several NGOs and international organizations. Most recently he came back to academia working as project Manager of R&D projects funded by European Commission at Polytechnic University of Madrid. His always existing interest in economics and social development issues has been constantly increasing during the last years, reason for which he decided to earn a Master’s Degree in “Economics and Management of Innovation” at the Polytechnic of Madrid in collaboration with Autonomous University of Madrid and Complutense University in 2009. He also delved into Economic of Innovation and Science and Technology policy at Aalborg University in Denmark. His primary research interest is sustainable and ecological transition and the critique of the Development Discourse and Growth. He is particular interested in the dynamic of innovation in emerging economies, appropriate technologies and grassroots and social innovations.
