Green Line Project Forum - intake 2

First Green Line Project Forum for intake 2, November 25th 2021

The first Green Line Project (GLP) Forum for intake 2 forum took place online on November 25th 2021. A joint event that allowed the students to share the first advances of their GLP work. Each group presented its topic and objectives through a 20’ min talk, followed by 20’ min exchange with the supervisors of the different groups, which stimulated fruitful cross-cutting discussions.

The GLP forum was a success. Indeed, the students provided high quality presentations, showing their strong involvement in their project as well as already good knowledge gained in their respective fields of investigation. Moreover, some of the presentations were highly pedagogical.

They now have to prepare their 1st semester report expected by 10th January, including a presentation of the state of the art, the objectives, an overall strategy as well as a detailed plan for the second Semester stage.

The next GLP forum will take place on January 31st.
