Forming project group teams

An important part of the school has to do with interacting with Faculty and your class mates. To foster this interaction interdisciplinary working groups will be formed. Each group will work on a project that will be presented by the end of the school. Projects are expected to elaborate on questions emerging from the working group internal brainstorming. Use the help and advise of the faculty around. They are open to interact and provide advise for the development of working group projects. And remember, the best way of tackling complexity is to aim for simplicity!
