Module summary

The purpose of this subject is to equip participants with a set of skills and toolkits necessary for effective planning and conducting scientific projects. We will begin with defining the open research questions, selection of the methods, analyzing the results, up to the scientific discourse and critical evaluation of own works. Moreover, the workshops should improve their analytical and organizational skills as well as equip them with computational tools, facilitating scientific research.
