All of them are related to green technologies, adaptation and mitigation of climate change. The projects are developed through online teamwork in multidisciplinary and international teams, and the implementation on field will be at the end of the semester, if traveling is then possible.

The project teams are conformed by students from several universities of the network, always ensuring a good balance between European and African students.
