Within the framework of the project, the doctoral students made more than 70 presentations at international conferences.
Within the framework of the project for the doctoral studies, a close cooperation with higher education establishments, such as Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation in Magdeburg (Germany) and Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (Lithuania) was established.
