The common aim of the partners is to bring this joint program into an advanced and completely original multidisciplinary framework with regard to the program currently offered in each of the institutions. At the end of this activity, the student will be able to:

- interpret and convert theoretical data into disciplinary interpretation,
- make a diagnosis and motivate an intervention on a foreign territory,
- discuss and work in international and multidisciplinary teams to build up confidence around a choice,
- synthesize multidisciplinary and multicultural opinions into a coherent discourse,
- communicate the scenario imagined by drawing, by writing and discourse, as well as its achievable concretization,
- defend the innovative project through argumentation before an international jury and local authorities,
- become familiar with other languages (French, Dutch, English, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, etc.)
Although limited to a few days in situ, this program makes it possible to provide inexhaustible data used the rest of the semester, back in the home institution. Several meetings are organized to prepare the workshop beforehand, and compare the work subsequently developed in each of the schools afterwards.
