Your thesis could be a winner! »
There are lots of awards to win by writing a good thesis. In our country there are various instances that want to reward quality research.
Every year a variety of awards is granted to the best master theses. Writing your thesis takes quite some effort and besides giving you some possibly interesting research outcome it could also get you some nice awards. Multiple instances throughout the country think its a good think that people write quality theses and therefore they grant these awards.
In order to win these prices you have to be enrolled for them and usually you have to talk this through with your mentor. There a lot of different prices focused on different types of research. You can find a lot of thesis awards on http://scriptie.nl/scriptieprijzen, where you can also enroll. The University of Twente has a special webpage with additional information on thesis awards for BIT-students: http://www.utwente.nl/bit/scriptieprijzen/. For BIT and CS students there is also the award by NGI-NGN. There is also awards especially for IT Security students. Namely the Joop Bautz Information Security Award and an award by Stichting Privacy Nederland (SPN) which can be found here: http://www.nationaleprivacyawards.nl/.
Besides all that, our alumni association ENIAC has a thesis reward of its own. You can find more info about it on the website of ENIAC.
Last year one of our ex-board members, Ruud Verbij, got granted a few awards. Ruud finished the IT Security master with a thesis called ‘Dutch E-Voting Opportunities’, a research on risk management on elections through internet. Ruud won the Joop Bautz Information Security Award 2014 and later also got granted a second place at the NGI-NGN award.

Happy birthday to me »
Thursday 12th of March we, Inter-Actief, grow another year older. And we'll celebrate that extensively of course.
On Wednesday we'll go swimming in the late afternoon after which there'll be a drink at the Educafé. At midnight we will then start our birthday with a nice birthday song. On Thursday we will actually grow a year older so there'll be a joke birthday cake at the IA-room. In the evening of the twelfth we'll enjoy a luxurious dinner in the Atrium in the Bastille. And to finish off the awesome week, there'll be cars driving around the country during the legendary Rially. Subscribe your team for a day full of car-puzzle-sweetness.
So don't forget to subscribe for the swimming, the dinner and the Rially and then we'll see you next week!
