Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The student should work with a current research or development project, which includes posing problems that can give specialisation/broadening within chemistry and chemical engineering. The project will present opportunities for information retrieval, practical work, and report writing. Then the project is carried out in groups involving lectures and reflections concerning prerequisites for modern leadership. Within the framework for the projects, one should identify and develop a business plan that includes sustainable business development.

Each project group has a supervisor
