Dare to Think

Dare to Think: that is the credo of Ghent University. Critical and independent brains study, do research and work at Ghent University. #daretothink is in our DNA and we encourage everyone to do the same.

Ghent University challenges you: prove us wrong!

To Martians, we are the aliens. Gluten killed the dinosaurs. God is a strawberry. Ghent University challenges you to think critically about scientific (un)truths with frequently absurd statements in Ghent, Kortrijk and beyond. After all, something is true until science disproves it, isn’t it? Prove us wrong!

It is because of those who dare to think, who defy dominant views and strong convictions, that the world progresses and we learned that the earth is not flat and that we aren’t the centre of the universe.
