Applications Open for Companies to Participate in the UvA Thesis Fair

The Informatics Institute at the University of Amsterdam, is organising its annual Thesis Fair, taking place on 21st November 2019.

The Thesis Marketplace ( is open all year round for companies and researchers to upload possible master thesis projects. Students browse these projects to find what best matches their interests. They are then able to contact the respective contact person on their own initiative.

Once a year, the Informatics Institute at UvA organises a Thesis Fair to bring companies and students together. Students vote on the submitted master thesis projects on the Marketplace. Based on the voting, a speed date schedule is established to best match companies and students. During these speed date sessions, companies have the opportunity to meet students for 10-minute conversations and discuss the content of the thesis projects. The event will finish with an open market and drinks.

Master students from Computer Science, Data Science, Information Systems, Logic and Software Engineering will attend the Thesis Fair. Last year, over 200 students attended the event to speed date and connect with over 55 companies.

The deadline for companies to submit master thesis projects for this year’s Thesis Fair is Friday 30th August. At the beginning of September, the students will browse, discuss and vote for the projects on the Marketplace website.

Companies wishing to participate in the event will be required to provide a small donation to cover the costs of the event.

If you would like to participate or if you have any questions please contact Giulia Donker at
