No country in the world is changing fast enough to be sustainable. However, by efficiently partner with universities and the private sector on the local, regional, national and international level, the quality and speed of change can significantly increase within existing budgets and timeframe
There is no specific thesis support system managing and evaluating the thesis process. many studies report up to 50% students drop out and delays up to several years before completion in the present system. A huge loss, personally, for the universities as well as for the society at large
There are 270 million students in higher education today

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The work on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is too slow in all countries in the World. This is a huge problem for Governments and society. In order to achieve SDGs there is an immense need for local and international research and development activities, but resources are limited and not properly coordinated.
If research/thesis could be aligned to SDGs more efficiently impact on society would be greater and the meaningfulness of thesis work would increase for all stakeholders: student, supervisor, university and society. Thesis work is already funded, if utilised more efficiently millions of work hours could be used for free in work-related Sustainable Development Goals. With improved university-industry collaboration, innovative R&D solutions, growth and graduate employability will increase. Additionally, large scale international research peer groups would be created within the 17 SDG areas.
