01.03.2019: First BRP month is nearly done ...
By now you should have a good feeling of your project: What is my research question, why is this question interesting, how do I address this question, what means do I need and how do I proceed, what kind of results do I expect to obtain ? Your scientific infrastructure should be ready by now as well. Software should be installed, setups should be running, data files should have been made accessible. 

If not --> Dieuwertje or Harold
