Future Proef for students

I would like to put my thesis in the spotlight

Did you write a master's thesis in the past academic year that contributes to a sustainable future? Compete for the Future Thesis Award from Ghent University and have a chance to win a small token of appreciation and a direct ticket to the Flemish level! More information about registration will follow on April 23, 2024.

The three winners of Ghent University will move on to the big finale on Flemish level, where they compete against students from the other higher education institutions for the Flemish Future Proef Award. The winner of this award receives no less than 3.000 euros and a lot of public attention!

Not in the mood to join a competition? Don't worry. There are other projects you can partake in within the Future Proef Project.

I would like to do research on a sustainable topic

In a number of programs, it is possible to write a bachelor- or master thesis on sustainable topics. Have a look at the possibilities within your program.

Some research questions come about in the 'Stadsacademie', a place where Ghent policymakers and UGent-teachers reflect together about social and ecological challenges facing Ghent University and Ghent City. These challenges are translated into projects, bachelor's - and master's theses. A concrete example is the ‘Living Lab campus Sterre’where the campus itself serves as an experimental space for student research on issues like circular building, biodiversity, use of space, and energy.

I would like to use my writing/filming/creative talent as an editor
