    GOT ENERGY TALENT is a highly competitive, merit-based fellowship programme aimed at incorporating postdoctoral talent on the area of SMART ENERGY to enable them to conduct their own excellent research project and bringing it closer to the society, in order to produce a positive effect not only in terms of excellent science and talent attraction but also by strengthening the regional economy and promoting international networking. GOT ENERGY TALENT will bring in 34 experienced researchers to develop a 24-month stay through 2 open calls at international level (17 fellowships per call), over its 60 months of implementation. The postdoctoral fellows will have a full trans-national mobility experience and access to the research facilities of the organisations partnering the programme from and outside academia. The fellows will freely decide whether to carry out a 24-month advanced research project or a 12-month advanced research combined with a 12-month period devoted to applied research, in one of the hosting institutions within the network of internationally recognised organisations on this core area. GOT ENERGY TALENT will strengthen a favourable environment in order to attract talented and experienced researchers by offering an attractive ecosystem, composed of academic and industrial organisations focused on ENERGY AREA with a strong potential. The selection of the area is based on the objectives posed by the Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3) of the region of Madrid, which encompasses Energy, amongst other prioritised areas, along with the long-term vision of the Universidad de Alcalá and the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, as it is clear from their involvement in the CIE ‘Smart Energy’ focusing on Bioenergy and Smart Cities. Furthermore, GOT ENERGY TALENT is a demand-driven research programme addressing the significant challenges faces Europe in the field of Energy.

    The relations between cultural developments and environmental change among hunter-gatherers are crucial for studying population dynamics during the last glaciation (110,000–11,700 years ago). However, proposing solid interpretations on how climate and environment variability affected the social and techno-economic organisation of hominins, requires robust geoarchaeological, chronological, and palaeoecological evidence. In the Iberian Peninsula, a key area for this period due to its geographic position and ecological variability, models on these topics are biased by the poor quality of available evidence for its interior lands. The Iberian interior has been traditionally depicted as a marginal and few populated region due to its harsh ecological conditions compared to the coastal areas. Based on preliminary data suggesting that this picture could be wrong, I hypothesize (1) that the human settlement of interior Iberia during this period was more stable than previously thought and (2) that his has relevant implications at the European scale for problems such as the replacement of Neandertals by modern humans, the first modern human peopling of Europe, and the patterns of land use and mobility during the coldest stages of the last glacial. To test these hypotheses, this project will investigate population dynamics and human-environment interactions of the last Neandertals and first modern humans in interior Iberia based on completely unprecedented evidence gathered by means of a macro-regional and interdisciplinary research project. This involves the participation of a wide team of scholars coordinated by the PI, and a network of methods including field surveys, geoarchaeological excavations and chronometric, paleoecological, zooarchaeological, techno-economic and symbolic studies. The results will significantly change our views on key biocultural and ecological processes of the European prehistory, and the way human societies have dealt with challenging environments.
