Science sharpens your mind

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper


Working in research gives the need to define your thinking. Your own field of work determines your scope of thinking. Science means generalisation of personal experiences in generally accepted models and paradigms. The difference between working in a project with stakeholders and science is the reflection on the working process that makes it possible to generalise ideas and exchange between researchers and between research regions
