J Cortez holds a PhD in Applied Biotechnology by De Montfort University, UK (1999). He worked at Nottingham Trent University from 1999-2008 on the use of enzymes to modulate thee properties of protein-based matrices. From 2008-12 he held a Ciência 2007 position at Universidade Nova de Lisboa, in the area of nanotechnology applications in biosensors and in textiles. His research involved collaboration with industry both in the UK and in Portugal, and the development of products and processes. In 2012, he became Head of INEB’s Technology Transfer Office, with responsibilities as International Projects Officer. At i3S, he was the Head of the Research Funding Office at i3S between 2017-19 and coordinated the RESOLVE Programme. Since May 2019 is the Research and Innovation Funding Advisor at CBQF/ESB. He has participated in European projects since FP4, and more recently on H2020-ICT-30: MIRACLE, H2020-Twinning: STARGATE and H2020-SFS-01: RADIANT.
