Dr Milto Miltiadou is a researcher of the Laboratory of Remote Sensing and Geo-Environment, Eratorshenes Research Centre, which is based at Cyprus University of Technology. From an early age, she showed exceptional performance and has been acknowledged with multiple awards. She studied her EngD at University of Bath, United Kingdom, with full studentship awarded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and specialised on efficient accumulation, analysis and visualisation of full-waveform (FW) LiDAR data in a volumetric representation with applications to forestry. During her EngD, she gained experience in both academia and industrial innovation through her placements at Airborne Research Facility of Plymouth Marine Laboratory, United Kingdom and Interpine Group Ltd, New Zealand. She further presented her research at eight well-established international and national conferences and she was invited to give lectures about FW LiDAR at the National Institute of Space Research (INPE), Brazil and University of Bari, Italy. Additionally, she has gained significant professional and life skills through extra-curricular activities, which include organising writing retreats and collecting feedback for improving student experience as the student representative.

Friends of the Earth Cyprus (FoE Cy) is a non-profit, non-governmental, environmental organization, based in Limassol. The organization was established in 1980 and since then has campaigned on a number of local, national and international environmental issues. Their goal is to raise awareness on the importance of preserving the natural environment and to campaign for solutions to environmental and social problems by promoting sustainable policies. Friends of the Earth Cyprus is a member of Friends of the Earth Europe and Friends of the Earth International networks. They are also a member of the European Environmental Bureau (EEB), Zero Waste Europe network and the Federation of Environmental Organizations of Cyprus (NGO‟s). Currently they have approximately 400 members in the whole of Cyprus. Also, the section Young Friends of the Earth Cyprus, exists that is a group of young people concerned about their future and campaigning actively for it.
