If your graduation research project is centred on plastic waste or water then be sure to join the Changemaker Challenge. You may be awarded a research grant of up to € 5,000.
All students of research universities and universities of applied sciences are welcome to participate. This means you do not have to be enrolled on any particular programme or be in any particular stage of your research project. All you need is a great idea. State clearly what your research focuses on and how you want to spend the research grant. From developing a prototype, making dresses out of recycled plastics or collecting samples out at sea – anything is possible.
Any student can save the planet
The submission deadline for the Changemaker Challenge is 1 April. The semi-final featuring the 20 top trailblaizing ideas will take place on 12 May. 10 students will then go on to the final held on 8 June.
