A visit of Maciej Piotrowski

On April 3-5 our laboratory was visited by dr. Maciej Piotrowski, General Director of the Institute of Economics of the University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszow (Poland). Maciej is a Home Mentor of Łukasz Stokłosa from the Sciex Programme (Scientific Exchange Programme NMS-CH) and it was his second short-term visit in Lugano.

Sciex Programme  is part of the Swiss Contribution to the New Member States of the EU. Sciex Programme gives the possibility for young researchers from Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Slovak Republic and Slovenia to conduct their research in cooperation with Swiss researchers in Swiss research institutions.

The main aim of the visit of dr Piotrowski was to meet with Łukasz and his Host Mentor in Switzerland – prof. Lorenzo Cantoni. During the meetings they discussed several topics related to Łukasz’s work as well as current and future cooperation between USI and UITM in Rzeszow. After the meeting on Tuesday Maciej gave a presentation about the research conducted by his Institute of Economics on harvesting data from search engines. Then there was a time for Easter wishes.
