Livio Rossi e-GEOS is the new president of AIT

Rome  19 December 2018

Livio Rossi, Senior Business and Development Manager at e-GEOS, is the new president of the Italian Society of Remote Sensing (AIT). He was elected receiving 80% of the votes, and is the successor to Prof Piero Boccardo.

Founded in 1986, the AIT’s goal is to support development and diffusion of a Remote Sensing culture in Italy. The Society, which has always been active on a scientific and technological level in Italy, quickly attained a significant position in Europe. In addition to organising courses and international events on the topic, AIT publishes the prestigious “European Journal of Remote Sensing” magazine, in collaboration with publisher Taylors & Francis.

The election of Livio Rossi, one of the society’s founders, is something completely new. For the first time since its foundation, a representative of the industrial world has achieved the top position. Mr Rossi will take office as President on 1st January 2019 and will remain in office until 31st December 2022.

His election is a reason to be proud for e-GEOS, a joint-venture between Telespazio (80%) and ASI (20%), one of the leading European players in the field of geo-information. This new presidency will be a further opportunity for AIT to broaden its horizons towards National and European Technological Agencies, central public administrations, and the business world.
