The jury has awarded prizes to two research groups for the most interesting projects:

1. The development of cycling infrastructure at the University of Gdańsk – the Bałkanika research group, the Faculty of Social Sciences

The aim of the project is to develop cycling infrastructure at the University of Gdańsk or to improve the existing one. It has been found that near certain buildings there are neither bike racks nor bike repair stations that would enable cyclists to do basic bike maintenance or to inflate tires. Regardless of the weather or the season of the year, many people cycle to the university, which testifies to
the need to install CCTV-monitored undercover bike racks.

2. Sustainable development can pay off financially – the Inwestor research group, the Faculty of Management

The aim of the project is to broaden knowledge about private and public sector investments in sustainable development. To do so, a series of seminars will be held to raise awareness of the idea of sustainable development and its importance as well as of the way in which investments in the broad sense can be part and parcel of engaging with sustainable development. The range of topics to be explored during each seminar will include the Sustainable Development Goals, investment rules, and the 2030 Agenda. Both students of the University of Gdańsk and other members of the academic community are welcome to attend the seminars. Business practitioners will also join the project.

Congratulations to all the winners!

Enjoying the patronage of Professor Piotr Stepnowski, Rector of the University of Gdańsk, the competition was organized by Professor Arnold Kłonczyński, Vice-Rector for Student Affairs and Education Quality, in cooperation with the Centre for Sustainable Development at the University of Gdańsk, the Student Parliament, and the Student and Doctoral Student Activity Center.
