Tips from Eduardo
"About my experience on the research proposal construction, I can say that it came pretty smooth for me. Maybe because I had a very good communication with my promotor and my daily supervisor in Delft. My daily supervisor has been available whenever I looked for him, and when he was busy he just gave me an appointment for the day after, two days after or so. I really liked the project since the beginning so perhaps that helped as well."
