The MTT had the objective to give master students from BUP participating universities the opportunity to meet and discuss scientific problems with a focus on sustainability in an interdisciplinary, international, multicultural, and regional context. Each student was also given individual feedback on their master thesis from a senior from a participating university.

The participating students gave the event a 9/10 rating and they all thought that the event was helpful in terms of improving your thesis. The senior supervisors have the event a 9.75/10 rating and they were all interested in being invited to future BUP events. Read the full event report from the MTT.
