Student in mobility stage have to attend online supervision.

In addition, students can appoint up to 6 hours meeting with their supervisors.

FP supervision seminars  consists in 3 parts: in the first one, students have to define the objectives and the focus of their project (the estimated workload is 25 hours), the second one consists in the development of the research or innovation project (workload 75 hours) and the 3rd one consists in the report writing and presentation (workload of approximately 50 hours).

During September a session for all students will be carried out. During this guideline on the elaboration of FP will be provided. After this session, students have to agree the first supervision meeting with their supervisors. During supervision meeting, students have to deliver the progress reports as detailed in the Assessment part of this document.
