Note

A maximum of 25 students can be enrolled in this Lab.

In case of higher demand, the price will go up: selection will be based on the student's performance in the module Development Economics and International Cooperation (Prof. Conzo). 

Extra students will be admitted upon motivated request, and - in any case - the decision will be based on the instructors' discretion. 

You have to enroll FIRST through this page (campusnet).

The "click day" is on FEBRUARY 12th starting at 9.00 am, when the official registration to this course will be opened on this platform.

Registration will close anyway on FEBRUARY 21th.

Then, before the beginning of the classes, only the students who managed to enroll in this platform will receive the password to enroll on the official moodle page of the course.

The "lucky" enrolled students are expected to guarantee their active participation in all the course activities (also as a form of respect towards the students who were willing to enroll but could not make it).
