Professor J.R. Morante is, since 1985, full professor of the Faculty of Physics of the University of Barcelona. Since 2009 he has been the director of the advanced materials for energy area of the Energy Research Institute of Catalonia, IREC, and since the end of 2015 he has been appointed as director of this institute. Previously he has been Vice Dean and dean of the Faculty of Physics of the University of Barcelona, director of the Department of Electronics of this university, head of studies in Electronic Engineering and co-coordinator of the interuniversity master between the University of Barcelona and the Polytechnic University of Catalonia of the master on Engineering in Energy.

His activities have been centered in electronic materials and electronic devices; the assessment of their related technologies and production processes, specially emphasizing electronic materials and device technology transfer. He was involved on sensors, actuators and Microsystems, especially on chemical sensors paying attention to the catalytic process at the interface solid-gas.

Currently, he is also now focused in the mechanisms of energy transfer in solid interfaces involving electrons, photons and phonons as well as chemicals. Likewise, he is specialized in the development of renewable energy devices and systems for applications in the field of energy and environment based on nano structures and their functionalization. His special attention is focused on advanced materials and structures for artificial photosynthesis including the production of hydrogen and fuels at solar refineries.

He has co-authored more than 600 publications, without proceedings and books, with more than 26.000 citations (h=86) according GS data base. He has 24 patents, has been advisor of 50 doctoral theses, has participated / coordinated numerous projects in different international and industrial programs (> 55). He has organized various international technological scientific conferences in the field of sensors / microsystems and "nano-energy" and has been distinguished with the medal Narcís Monturiol of the Generalitat de Catalunya. He has also served as vice president of the European Materials Society and is the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics.
