The prospective study

How does a prospective study work?

A long format

The prospective study is a long format collaborative project in which students of different levels and profiles work together to develop innovative design proposals.

Objectives for the partner

Developing visions in the form of concepts using a specific problem provided by the partner as a starting point to explore the potential for innovation.

Teaching benefits

Students develop their capacity for project management, analysis of a complex project and conceptualization. They consolidate their experience in the field of communication.
