Conclusions: This is the conclusion of what has been written and studied for the preparation of the project. The topic and methodology of the paper are briefly described, the contribution of the new project at a theoretical and practical level is highlighted, the limitations set are highlighted and proposals for improvements and future research are submitted.

Bibliography: The sources used based on the way of writing followed by each educational institution are listed.

Annexes: Includes the additional information and data that are part of the project but did not need to be incorporated into the main text.
