September issue of our Newsletter Control Sheet is out!

It's been quite an eventful and busy summer at Cosylab. We attended many conferences & workshops in Europe and Asia, and also hosted various events at our headquarters in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The summer was especially busy for our Swiss team, which joined the Swiss Physical Society Annual Meeting and visited SINDEX, the influential industrial automation trade fair. At the same time, Cosylab Switzerland reached a very important milestone by becoming a member of two important organizations Swissmem & Swiss Aerospace Cluster.

Talking about (aero)space, make sure not to miss interesting insights about space instrumentation and projects by Diego Casadei, our Head of Space R&D.

Our CEO, Mark Pleško, has been as busy as ever. We're proud to say that today, Friday 28 September, he will receive the Generali Alumni Achievement Award from the IEDC School of Management. Read the interview with Mark in this month's issue to learn how he manages the life of a scientist, entrepreneur, husband, father and last but not least, a leader.

For more technology insights, see all the new features of EPICS7 summarized by Gregor Gregorič, expert C and C++ developer.

Lastly, if you would like to know how ITER addressed the standardization challenge, make sure to read the ITER Case Study.
