Dopper Foundation acts as a facilitator for educational projects on water and waste under the name ‘Dopper Academy’. Examples include the guest lectures Dopper offers free of charge to Dutch elementary and secondary schools, in cooperation with the Plastic Soup Foundation. Our latest project is the Changemaker Challenge.
The Dopper Foundation challenges Master’s students to do pioneering research in the field of clean (drinking) water or plastic waste – with the Changemaker Challenge! We’re awarding 3 prizes of € 3,000 each to the three Master’s students with the brightest research proposals. You can use the money for the development of a prototype, to travel to the bottom of the ocean, or to make a Hollywood movie of your findings (including a starring role for Scarlett Johansson). Anything is possible – all you have to do is convince us of why you need the research money in order to make your research pioneering and ground-breaking. And no, that means that drinking beer in a bar will not make the grade. By submitting your proposal, you stand a chance of winning a € 3,000 research grant so you can break new ground with your master’s thesis. Use the topic of your master’s thesis to register. Of course, your topic should be innovative and entirely your own – cheating only works on multiple choice-tests. Registration is open until January 15, 2017
