"Science slam" – bringing science to the stage

Before the networking event begins, a "science slam" session will take place. Registration is required.
What is science slam?
"Science slam" is a fascinating new form of science communication. Researchers present their projects in an entertaining and understandable way – moving away from the desk, out of the lab and onto the stage! In just 10 minutes, they compete against other researchers, with any aids and props they need. At the end, the audience will select the Science Slam Champion!

A science slam is a unique opportunity to explain your subject area to the audience in any way you like. An enriching experience and an exciting adventure await!
