Course ObjectiveThe goal is that students learn how to work in a team on a real EOR
project with realistic data. This means that they learn how to describe
the case in ordinary language, how to formulate it in EOR language,
discuss what EOR techniques might be applicable to solve the problem,
and learn to work it out using the acquired skills and knowledge of the
first two years of the EOR program. Furthermore, the goal is to learn
how to report and present intermediate and final results of a project.
Course ContentIn this course you work in teams of two or three on a practical project
