Dr. Michael Cotter

The preliminary visit of Dr. Michael A. Cotter to Portugal took place on November, 12th to 16th.
Extremely gentle, the President of EUSO demonstrated full availability to give advices and suggestions for all aspects of this great event preparation.
Dr. Michael A. Cotter stayed in Tryp Caparica Hotel, the same hotel that the mentors and students will be staying in.
There were several official meetings during the visit, namely the Organising Committee meeting, the Scientific Committee meeting and a meeting with the portuguese Minister of Education, Doutor Tiago Brandão Rodrigues.
A very objective and conclusive discussion on the schedules for Students and Mentors took place in The General-Directorate for Education, one of the Organisers.
Dr. Michael has also a meeting wit mayor of Almada, Dra. Inês de Medeiros.
Dr. Michael Cotter visited the places where the Opening and Closing Ceremonies will take place and the laboratories of the NOVA School of Science and Technology. He also visited various locations that the students will visit, namely a central area of Lisbon, as well as Almada.
We truly believe that Dr. Michael will not forget our beautiful bridge over the Tagus River, which connects Lisbon and Almada.
Both the Organising Committee and Scientific Committee gratefully acknowledge the presence of Dr. Michael Cotter in Portugal and look forward for his coming back on May!
