The EurAAP (European Association on Antennas and Propagation) recognised Luis M. Correia with the 2021 EurAAP Propagation Award “for leadership in the field of propagation for wireless and mobile communications”.
Luis M. Correia specific area of work involves the development of models for the propagation of signals so that one can properly estimate coverage and interference. He has taken the leadership in a number of international projects and work groups that resulted in models and recommendations taken by international standardisation bodies and other organisations.
Luis M. Correia commented: “It’s always a pleasure and an honour for anyone to receive a professional award, namely when it’s given by your peers, since it means recognition at the highest level. I’ve been working in the area of mobile and wireless communications since I received my Ph.D., being involved in many initiatives worldwide, namely at the European level, so receiving this international award is an extremely rewarding achievement”.
EurAAP is an international technical/scientific/educational association, with activities involving antennas and propagation applied to all areas of telecommunications. It is one of the largest associations of its kind at the international level, having EuCAP (European Conference on Antennas and Propagation) as one of its key initiatives, with around 1 500 people attending the conference annually. The association was created in the frame of the European Network of Excellence “ACE – Antenna Centre of Excellence”, as the point of reference of the European Antenna and Propagation scientific community.
