Content

Students work together in groups on a problem of practical importance in the field of "Environment and Bio-Resources Management" with an interdisciplinary approach.

The class begins with a kick-off meeting where students will be introduced to the topics that will be studied in the current semester. This will be followed by a group phase where students work independently - guided by an advisor - on their problem, performing literature research, interviews, etc. The work will result in a written, scientific report as well as oral presentation and discussion in a plenary session.
