Have you recently discussed a thesis on the topics of the conference?
Get involved in the Med Green Forum 6 – Thesis Award!
Passionately sustaining the pivotal role of young talents in envisioning and designing future cities, the 6th edition of the Med Green Forum launches the MGF Thesis Award to promote, reward and give visibility to the most creative and ambitious master theses addressing the topics of the Green and Digital Transitions in Mediterranean buildings and cities.
With the aim of sharing fresher, maybe revolutionary, ideas and projects to open up new possibilities, the MGF Thesis Award provides young designers as future professionals/researchers to showcase their work on an international stage.
In order to involve more young in the MGF6, the Thesis Award will reward winners selected by the Thesis Award Committee as follows:
- 1st prize: 1000 € + publication of full paper + free access to MGF conference in Florence;
- 2nd prize: 500 € + publication of full paper + free access to MGF conference in Florence;
- n. 3 Honorable Mentions: publication of full paper + free access to MGF conference in Florence.
The full papers describing each winner theses and honorable mentions will be published in the the open access international REES Journal (Renewable Energy and Environmental Sustainability).
Winners will be proclaimed in a special session of the Med Green Forum 2022, foreseen for the last day: in this occasion, winners will get a video interview in front of their posters to share their innovative design ideas, which will be published on the MGF website and in the MGF history (explore previous editions in ‘previous MGF’).
MGF Thesis Award 2022 is open to young graduated of all nationalities and institutions which discussed a thesis (bachelor/master thesis/ professional masters or PhD) in the last 3 years. Groups, as well as individual entries, are allowed. The official language of the competition is English.
