Workshop on "Tools for Project Initiation and Development"

17 & 18 August 2021

Following upon the May course in conceptual modeling methods, this first workshop aims to summarize the methodology and present some of the conclusions from the course. We will present some initial results of case-study analyses, stressing the use of the strengths and limitations of the methods as tools for partner collaboration .

This workshop is a hybrid workshop in connection with the August SGEM World Science conference in Albena, Bulgaria.
