Research-Project Management

Lecturer(s): José PENUELAS, Mathieu CREYSSELS
Course ⋅ 10 hStudy ⋅ 21 h


The objective of this course is to train students in the management of the research project and its specificities (Go / No Go). This is done by a real situation on a case study which justifies a need for innovation (evaluation of a technological modification / breakthrough, ...), in an often multidisciplinary context, both at the level of the subject but also methods. Students must provide quantified answers to the problem posed.


Innovation, transversality.
