Ferran Cabrer i Vilagut is the President and Manager of CONSEN Euro-Group and CEO of MUFICATA S.L.

He is an Industrial and Agricultural Engineer by profession with a Master degree in Business Administration. Although he has been involved in different sectors, it is important to point out his work as manager of the Research and Technological Development department of phyto-pharmaceutical products across Spain before the petroleum world crisis. In a personal entrepreneur project he founded MUFICATA as an ICT Enterprises consulting and Corporate Finance firm to provide Enterprises with Information and Technological services in the Barcelona area.

The Internet was the instrument used to convert International services to EU information and project management services. After a couple of years, he founded CONSEN, operating in ICT and ACAIA network. He currently collaborates as Vice-Chairman of the Knowledge@work community integrated in the AmI@work initiative of "New Collaborative Environments" Strategic Objective, and he is also contributing to diverse projects: EURO_COOP ICT_DEV Romanian research project for a sustainable cooperation throughout Europe, member of the European Association of Research Managers and Administrators (EARMA), member of eBusiness Support Network (eBSN), Living-Labs and several more European initiatives and networks in IST as eMobility, ISI, NESSI and NEM technological platforms.

His current work is focused on setting the bases of the future Internet of Sensing Things (IoST) and the Sensing-events detection, representation and processing for the simulation and experimentation of artificial intelligence, computational and mathematical models of robotics systems applied to industrial applications.
