  • Pitching sessions:
Selected students pitch their thesis ideas.

Selected organisations may pitch either their trainee program, thesis ideas or other chosen collaboration opportunities to the student.


  • Open Fair:
Organisations, students and academics can get together at the organisations’ stands at the Open Fair to discuss collaboration options.
