Re-inauguration and final presentations 2019

At Challenge Lab, 12 students have conducted their master theses during the spring. They will present their work on June 12th and 13th. During these days we will also celebrate that we have moved to a new venue, with an inauguration in the morning the 12th.

The inauguration and the presentations are open to the public, but you need to register through the links below (since we order coffee and/or snack). It is possible to register to a full day, or parts of the day. The event will be held in Challenge Labs venue at Johanneberg Science Park.

All presentations will start with about 30 minutes of presenting the thesis, followed by 10 minutes of opposition. The remaining 15 minutes will be devoted to questions from the audience.

Summaries of the projects are available here.
