Filippo Sanfilippo awarded with the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES) Grant

It is a great pleasure and a true honour for me to communicate that I have been awarded a research scholarship from the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES) Scholarship program with regards to my PhD studies.

OES awards only eight scholarships a year to deserving researchers across the world.

The committee has officially announced the award with the following words:

"Dear Filippo, Thank you for your interest and application to the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES) Scholarship program. We are delighted to inform you that your application package was approved and we would like to offer you a grant. Again, congratulations on your award."

I dedicate this award to all my students and to my family.

I am very thankful to Professor Kristin Ytterstad Pettersen, Department of Engineering Cybernetics, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim. Without her inspirational guidance, her enthusiasm, her encouragements, her unselfish help, I could never achieve these results.

IEEE has reported the news about the award on the following link and newsletter:
