During the six-month training programme the fellows work individually on projects under supervision of suitable experts. The individually based project work will mainly take part in the latter three months of the training. Project planning is an essential part of the training and therefore the fellows will start planning their projects already during the first weeks of the programme by working on their project proposal.
The projects may either be based on data that the fellows collect in Iceland or on data that they bring with them from their home countries after ensuring acceptable data quality. Presentation of the project results is another essential training issue. The projects should be written up in English as reports. By the end of the programme period, the fellows will give oral presentations of their projects.
