The Bench to Bed group of Karolinska Institutet (an interdisciplinary group of inspiring people interested to create more meaningful research) is proud to announce that also this year will take part at KI Cancer Retreat on September 30th-October 1st.
Conference organizers has explicitly asked the group to host a session on effective science communication. The session will be coordinated by experience designer Max Kleijberg and myself, and aims to fasten new and unexpected collaborations between scientists that works in the cancer research field.
We want YOU, PhD students who wants to give an oral presentation:
Interested students will give a dynamic talk about their research using power point slides. You will give your presentation to an interdisciplinary and international audience in a session during a break from the main meeting. In order to communicate your research in the best way possible we will follow the PechaKucha format for your presentation: your research/message/method will be delivered in 6 min and indicatively max 20 slides. To be inspired: http://www.pechakucha.org/
Look at last year pitch presentation from the BtoB Group, and how science communication can improve your research output:
Students interested to give a presentation should join a short and focused workshop on science talks and presentation methods, with good food and great people (we know how valuable your time is!).
The presentation is worth 0.5 credits, the conference organizers has granted.
If you are interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you there!
