Daniele De Vecchi, who has just completed his PhD at the Laboratory of Telecommunications and Remote Sensing of the Department of Industrial and Information Engineering, University of Pavia, in the past year had already collected quite a few medals in the field of Apps for mobile terminals that use and manage data acquired by Earth observation satellites.
 
In fact, in April he was among the winners of the MyGeoss competitive tender, organized by the Joint Research Centre of the European Union, with the  "Cloopsy" App proposal for land cover validation.

Daniele De Vecchi and Andreas Salentinig, together with 6 other PhD students of the PhD Course in Electronic, Electrical and Computer Science, defended their PhD thesis in front of an examination board of 6 members.

Their defence was successful and the Board granted them the PhD title.

We wish the new PhDs all the best for their future careers.

Daniele De Vecchi, post-doc at our lab, is in Brussels today and tomorrow to present his results from the MyGeoss grant that he won after a successful application to the third MyGeoss competitive call for proposals, submitted when he was still PhD student here.

MYGEOSS is a two-year project (2015-16) by the European Commission to develop GEOSS-based (Global Earth Observation System of Systems) smart Internet applications informing European citizens on the changes affecting their local environment.
