 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Associate Professor in the area of Regional Geographical Analysis Department of Geography, University of Valencia (2007). Since 1994 he participates in competitive projects of various research programs of the EU (Framework Programmes, LLP, ESPON). Research topics relate to regional development, especially in rural areas (evaluation of development policies, public-private cooperation for development, remoteness and new factors of territorial development, integrated tourism, knowledge and territorial development). In recent years, the focus of research aims at analysing the elements and dynamics involved in achieving sustainable territorial development processes (narratives that govern the evolution of non-metropolitan territories, the role of public services in development, relations between rural and urban areas, or use of public space, among others).

In the field of public policy evaluation he has participated in various official evaluations of rural development programs, such as the interim evaluation of the LEADER II Community Initiative in the region of Valencia (1999) and the ex-post evaluation of the LEADER II Community Initiative in Europe (2003-04). He has also worked as a regional coordinator of the LEADER Observatory in Spain during the LEADER II (1996-2001).

In 2008 he founded the research group Local Sustainability - LOCSUS (www.locsus.com) within the Interuniversity Institute for Local Development of the University of Valencia (www.iidl-valencia.es). The LOCSUS Group focuses on the analysis of the elements and variables involved in the sustainable development of territories and societies, the development of methodologies for strategic planning, monitoring and evaluation of public policies (systems of indicators) and coordination and participation in local development processes. By applying strategic planning methodologies, LOCSUS carried out various analyzes, whose ultimate goal is to design a more sustainable model of territorial development, legitimized by society, covering one or several objectives to be analyzed (tourism, trade, planning Urban and industrial competitiveness, social cohesion, or the territory in general). To date, Joan Noguera has obtained 15 research contracts and/or transfer of knowledge with various government worth € 450,000 (Strategic Plans, Local Resource Valuation, Feasibility Studies, etc.). Locally he has conducted knowledge transfer projects, most of them commissioned by local or regional governments.

It has achieved an intense internationalisation of research and knowledge transfer in two main areas. On the one hand, the European projects already described and whose latest examples belong to the ESPON programs and Lifelong Learning Programme (ASPIS, EDORA, EMRA and E-CLIC). On the other hand, technical assistance and knowledge transfer in Latin America. Over the past 10 years has signed research contracts and technical assistance worth 400,000 € with the Government of Chile (SERCOTEC), the Municipality of Rancagua (Chile), and the Agency for Supporting to Micro and small Entrepreneurs of Brazil (SEBRAE) through which it has launched a series of actions. The most important is the Master on Territorial and Sustainable Vision of Development - Methods and tools for institutional action.

He has been or is a member of the Board of the Association of Spanish Geographers (2011-2014), member of the Spanish Committee of the International Geographic Union (2011-2014), member of FLACSO-Spain (since 2014), expert for the Unit for Rural and Regional Programme of the OECD (since 2012), and expert for the DG Regio of the European Commission (2015-2018). He is or has been a member of the editorial board of the journals Bulletin of the Association of Spanish Geographers (2011-2013), Revista Econômica do Nordeste Banco do Nordeste (Brazil, from January 2014), ADOZ-Leisure Magazine Study of Deusto University (since 2010), and TERRA-Journal of Local Development of the University of Valencia (since 2014).

He has directed various postgraduate training courses of the University of Valencia related to local and regional development. From 2006-2009 he headed the online master “Methods and Tools for Local Development”. Later he was director of the “Master in Cooperation for Development” (2011-2012) and Postgraduate “Diploma in GIS for professional development” (2014). Since 2013, he is the director of the “Master of Management and Promotion of Local Development”.

He has been invited to the University of Maine in the USA (1996, 1997 and 1998), University of Lancaster in the UK (1997), City University of New York (2000), Georgia Technological University in the US (2005), Leibniz Universität Hannover in Germany (2009), and Universidade Estadual Paulista in Brazil Franca (2014), among other.
