The course was divided into two parts, with the first part being related to the Historical and Cultural components of the project where it was presented the scientific methodology adapted by Universidade NOVA de Lisboa and the participants were able to visit Coimbra University Archive. In the second part of the course, the participants had the opportunity to learn about the scientific methodology adapted by Universidade de Coimbra, related to Leaf Decomposition, and put that methodology into practice with a field trip to the river.
