Learning outcomes

In science it is of vital importance that a candidate can present his and hers project in a convincing way. As the session has a structure as a scientific audit, the information provided by the evaluators will provide the candidate new knowledge related to:

1. The quality of the presentation.

2. How they should handle critics related to project.

3. The status of the project according to the project plan.

This will give the candidate more insight with his/her own project.
