Concluding Remarks & General Discussion



Further information on Round Tables:

  • There are three parallel Round Tables (A, B, and C) which comprise two or three projects each.

  • At each Round Table a project will be discussed by two facilitators. The convenors will forward the relevant project proposals/papers to the Round Table participants. Round Table participants are expected to thoroughly read the projects proposals of their table.

  • The researcher has to present his/her project to the Round Table participants (max. 10 minutes). The facilitators and chairs then provide development feedback to the researcher.

  • After the developmental feedback of facilitators and chairs, the Round Table will be opened for discussion among all Round Table participants.
