    Study places for students in Brussels: how can they be improved?

    Although many students prefer to study in groups, the offer of study places in Brussels is still relatively underdeveloped compared to other university cities, and the existing places are often not known to everyone. This is why we are conducting a study with which we hope to learn more about the habits and needs of Brussels students with respect to such study spaces: what makes a good study place for you? Where are extra places needed? How can we communicate better about the current offer, the occupancy rate or bookability ... The answers will be used to improve the available information about and access to study areas for everyone, and will be shared with the 'Student Life' cell of the Brussels Capital Region.

    This survey takes about 5 minutes and will remain online until October 16. With your input we can work towards a better offer. So thanks in advance!


    Explainable Artificial Intelligence

    As robots are used in more and more companies and are in more close collaboration with humans, we need to ensure their human partners can communicate with them and understand how they select their strategies to perform a task. And in the case the robot is making a mistake, human partner should be able to teach it new behavior and correct it. We, in Mechanical Engineering department of VUB,  conducting an experiment to study the effect of enabling robots to explain their behaviors and the human experience of collaboration with such a robot. The experiment lasts between 10-20 minutes. 


    Mental health and social connectedness with VUB-students

    During student life you gain a lot of new experiences and you also get to know many new people. Not all students deal with this in the same way or find their way easily. We are therefore curious about your experiences!

    More specifically, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel would like to find out more about the social relationships of its students (social connections or loneliness) and about how well they feel (mental well-being or unwell-being). The results of this study will be used to adjust or further elaborate (prevention) initiatives for students.

    To get a representative picture, it is important that as many students as possible participate! If you participate you have the chance to win one of the many available 30 euro vouchers of the Standaard Bookshop Campus VUB. The survey will take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

    We are a group of final year students Communication Management at the Erasmushogeschool Brussel. For our graduation project, we are conducting a research into the motives that drive students at the VUB (Ixelles/Etterbeek, Jette and Anderlecht campus) to play sports.
