Thesis topics sessions

Each year the three different universities organize the Thesis Topics Sessions. During these info sessions, the students are invited to each university and different researchers give an explanation about their particular research and expertise. Possible thesis topics are suggested, although own initiaves are also supported when fitting in the programme's research frameworks. For the proposed thesis topics, we do not work on a first come first served basis. If multiple students wish to work on the same thesis topic on which only one student can work, the supervisor will choose a student based on motivation.
