Terms and conditions
Preferably, but without limitation, the clinic collaborates with organizations with modest financial, technical and other resources. The brief must be carried out within a university semester, i.e., from September to December or January to April. The clinic is inactive during the summer. Given that the briefs are carried out by students, the deliverables produced and recommendations issued must be understood as environmental information rather than professional opinions (such as those provided by consulting or environmental expert firms).
