Javier has also contributed to ten interdisciplinary research projects funded by the Ministry of Education and Science, the Department of Culture, Education and Science of the Government of Valencia, and the European Union, addressing various issues ranging from Protection of Industrial Design, ADRs (Alternative Dispute Resolutions) and more recently, Judicial Cooperation and the Principle of Mutual Recognition within the framework of the European Union.
