This elective course foresees a series of weekly thematic lectures in semester 2, given by speakers from different European institutions. In a concluding immersive week around the Easter term in 2022, you will work intensively in international teams on a challenge and give a final presentation to the city of Ghent and possibly an audience.

Each of the ENLIGHT-institutions will delegate 5 students with multidisciplinary backgrounds who will travel to Ghent. Together with them you will form international teams. If more UGent students want to participate, local teams will be formed as well.
