Applicants are expected to pitch their final thesis in English within the framework of the International Week 2023 at the St. Pölten UAS.
In the summer of 2023, an expert jury will first hold an in-camera session and make a pre-selection of the three best bachelor and master theses written at St. Pölten UAS and of the three best final theses written at a higher education institution of the E³UDRES² alliance, respectively. All applicants will subsequently be informed thereof.
In the second step, the candidates nominated by the jury in the pre-selection process will pitch their work in English within the framework of the International Week 2023 at the St. Pölten UAS. Based on these presentations, the expert jury will take its final decision on the awards.
The winners’ names will be announced in the reporting on the Gender & Diversity Awards 2023 in the St. Pölten UAS’ media. No claims can be derived from either this call for submissions or an application.
