Everything starts with thought. This is something we've been saying for years – the credo of Ghent University is ‘Dare to Think’. But that’s only half the job.

Who knows how your job will look within ten years? More importantly, will your job even exist? In a society that is changing rapidly it is hard to answer such questions.
