Mr. Lu shares with us his work at Amass Design Group: everything from research to field study, from restoration to design. He calls his team the 'space guerillas' whose work is more akin to revolution.

BY GEORGIOS GIANNOPOULOS
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAY 17, 2019

In this talk, JRC researcher Georgios Giannopoulous explains what systems are in place to protect critical infrastructure so that the end-users do not need to worry about potential problems.
