The first EPA Master Thesis Conference: Grand Challenge Accepted took place on 21 August 2018. The final stage of the EPA Master’s programme is the thesis research project. The master thesis projects all contribute to the governance of international grand challenges, like sustainable cities such as The Hague, future urban mobility, water safety and resilient infrastructure.
During the thesis conference, master students presented their typical EPA project, to external relations, future commissioners, employers, students and family and friends. During the conference visitors could join parallel sessions on various research topics such as humanitarian aid organisation, transport policies, energy transition modelling and adaptive decision making methods.
