NOVA IMS' Student wins UNIGIS International Association 2019 Academic Excellence Prize

Diogo Cardoso, student of the Master's Degree in Geographic Information Systems and Science saw his MSc thesis being awarded the UNIGIS International Association 2019 Academic Excellence Prize. An independent Review Board analyzed a number of MSc thesis proposed by UIA centers. The criteria used to evaluate the theses included: technical quality, quality of literature review, relevance, presentation and originality. The standard of the theses submitted was very high this year and the MSc thesis entitled: “A geographically weighted regression approach to investigate air pollution effect on lung cancer: A case study in Portugal” was considered unanimously by the Review Board as the first runner up in this year’s competition. This result is a recognition that marks the example of ‘good practice’ for the UNIGIS community
