The team exercise will start with a general introduction by an expert who will provide guidance on how to develop and carry out interdisciplinary research. On the second day of the conference, interdisciplinary student teams will be assembled and, based on the expert’s guidelines, each team will design an interdisciplinary research project utilizing real case studies introduced by members of different conservation organisations in Cambridge.

At the end of the conference the teams will present their findings and a jury of mixed experts will assess the results. The most original team will receive a prize.
