His main field of interest is twofold. On one hand — and due to a personal philosophy of life — the aspects related with Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D): e-Readiness, the Digital Divide, ICTs in cooperation for development, nonprofit technology, online volunteering, e-Inclusion. On the other hand — and due to a professional engagement in the field — the aspects related with e-Learning and empowerment: digital capacity building and literacy, e-Portfolios, Open Access, Open Science, Access to Knowledge. When both ends meet, the conjunction is perfect.
