Seminars on the development of International Projects

Escuela ProyectosIn the last two years, a group of students from various universities, many of whom are doctoral candidates, convene regularly to learn how to write projects and to design their own.  Motivated by a strong desire to transform society they gather to look for a methodology to make their vision of society a reality. At times they meet virtually to exchange views. They collect materials, share them through Internet, and gather to discuss their findings and the different steps of project writing and implementation. Some of these students have attended international conferences and have presented joint papers, which have been published.
