Effective Thesis is a project that directs students’ research towards EA causes by offering them EA-related topics for their final dissertations and theses. Read more here: http://effective-altruism.com/ea/1p4/effective_thesis_project_review/
We are hosting a meetup to present and discuss the project and will be happy to meet anyone having ideas how to improve the project, wanting to contribute or being generally interested, be it EA aligned researcher, a student looking for an impactful topic or other curious individuals.
We would also like to organize similar meetups in Chicago and New York. If you are interested and can help us with logistics, write to firstname.lastname@example.org
