Students submit an A1 poster in PDF format with a detailed description of the proposal (theme, goal, locations) and high-resolution images. The proposal can be supplemented with additional material in MP3 or MP4 formats, up to a maximum of 3 minutes.

The trip is expected to take place between July and October 2024. Upon completion, the research results will be presented at the Norman Foster Foundation.
