  1. What level of difficulty can we expect, and which programs will we be using? In terms of the project, it would be similar to the daylighting course. The lectures vary from different experts with backgrounds in urban design to biology. There is a lot of focus on networking and becoming a group of students in the EU that can carry this knowledge further. It will be intense in terms of working and having fun while reflecting on the problem in a group.
  2. It says public presentation on day 7 – is that us students or what can we expect? You will create a 2-minute video of your projects and they will be presented at the Gdynia design days event. The idea is to create inspiring and engaging videos. You will get some knowledge on how to make such videos. It won’t be a poster or COVID-19 presentations.
  3. Do you have any idea of how many spots there are left? And what will it cost for consortium students? The cost is 300 EUR. The accommodation, food, travel, tours, etc. is covered by the university.
  4. Do you know exactly when they plan for us students to be back in our country? You are supposed to leave on the 2nd of September. On the 1st of September, there will be a presentation, and in the evening there will be a social event.
