The Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics of the Cyprus University of Technology in cooperation with project EXCELSIOR H2020 Teaming, held an open scientific lecture on Monday, March 9, 2020 with the internationally recognized senior researcher Dr. Ulla Wandinger. During the lecture, the dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology, Prof. Phaedon Kyriakides, addressed a brief greeting.
Dr. Ulla Wandinger is a Senior Research Scientist and Deputy Head of the Institute’s Department of Remote Sensing of Atmospheric Processes for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS) in Leipzig, Germany. She has gain more than 30 years of experience in aerosol and cloud remote sensing and published more than 90 articles in peer‐reviewed journals. Over the last decade, she has been strongly involved in the construction of the European Aerosol, Clouds, and Trace Gases Research Infrastructure (ACTRIS). Ulla Wandinger is coordinator of the German ACTRIS consortium and member of the ESA‐JAXA EarthCARE Joint Mission Advisory Group, the ACTRIS Executive Board, and the EARLINET Council.
The lecture entitled “The European Research Infrastructure ACTRIS and the ERATOSTHENES Center of Excellence: Exploring the Importance of Atmospheric Sensing for the EMMENA Region” was organized as part of the actions of the EXCELSIOR H2020 program [GA: 857510] for the transfer of know-how and enhancing Research and Innovation.
In her presentation, Dr. Ulla Wandinger referred to the importance and necessity of the ACTRIS European Research Infrastructure for the study of Atmosphere, Climate Change and Air Pollution as well as the strategic role of the Atmospheric Observatory Research Infrastructure for the area. It is worth noting that ACTRIS is a pan-European research infrastructure for providing on short‐lived atmospheric constituents and the processes that control their life cycles.

In addition to the open lecture, a second lecture entitled “Ground-based remote sensing of aerosol and clouds: Lidar and radar measurements of climate-relevant processes in the atmosphere” was delivered. Dr. Ulla Wandinger, mainly targeting doctoral candidates, master students and young researchers, introduced new trends, techniques and methodologies for studying atmospheric and climate parameters. At the end of the presentations the students had the opportunity to ask questions and talk to Dr. Ulla Wandinger on future research trends and opportunities offered through the newly established ERATOSTHENES Centre of Excellence.
