Gionata Cova's Problem Solving Skills:
Gionata Cova's Problem Solving Experience:
I organized different adult education technology courses for local institutions.
I participated to Vision GIS project at CRS4 in 1995.
I developed knowledge in many different consumer products fields troubleshooting over 20000 problems from home users. I have a vast knowledge of common defects affecting many different products.
I have designed a nano-sized devices as part of study activities. I studied nanotechnology applied to IT, mechanical engineering, environmental engineering and renewable energy. I did a study about the NASA Early Warning bio-sensor for the detection of organic pollutants in water.
From 1995 to 1997 I collaborated to the digitization of a public historical archive counting more than 100.000 pieces.
I did two different studies about Integrated waste management plants and energy from waste (EfW).
I have contributed to the growth of a major crowd-sourced content solution provider with hints that resulted determinant for the development of website and virtual community.
