Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

At the end of the activity, the student will be aware of the role of research, as the motor of innovation and of innovation as the main goal for fostering sustainable development and well-being improvement. Since collaborative work is the major tool for scientific research, the student will be aware of the good practice for building working teams. To these aims, the basic knowledge of the national language (Italian, Portuguese, Spanish or Catalan) will be improved.
