Icing on the top: Antonia Cozacu finished her apprenticeship in geomatics at the GFZ eScience Centre (formerly Center for GeoInformationTechnologies CeGIT) as best of the year for the State of Brandenburg. Last Friday, at the formal certificate presentation in Frankfurt an der Oder Bernd Sorge, head of the German Society for Geodesy, Geoinformation, and Land Management DVW, also awarded her with the ‘Nachwuchsförderpreis’ (young talent award) 2018.

Cozacu startet her apprenticeship at the end of 2016 on a rather unusual way via an unsolicited application after studying biology – she was able to start her apprenticeship in the second year, thus she was part of the last training year of geomatics apprentices at the GFZ since this formal training is no longer available here. Antonia Cozacu: „What I especially liked about geomatics is its variety as well as the possibility to get insights into the work of different institutes.” Geomatics is composed of four branches of studies: computer science, surveying techniques, cartography, and media design.

Due to her excellently good performance, Cozacu will stay at GFZ for a follow-up year. During this year she will work within web development at the eScience Centre, for example on an information graphics of the investigation area of the Earth System Observatory TERENO. Furthermore, she will improve the web application displaying current data of the seismic network GEOFON. (ak)
