3rd EURAXESS Science Slam
A science slam is a science communication event, similar in nature to a poetry slam, where researchers compete by presenting their work in front of a non-expert audience. The focus is on making research interesting, engaging, entertaining and thrilling for the audience. This will give researchers based in North America the chance to showcase their work and talent for giving a lively and interesting presentation. Each live presentation is given in English in less than 10 minutes and can be supported by video, audio material, slides or any other kind of media, as well as by scientific equipment, everything is allowed!
This year's EURAXESS Science Slam 2015 will take place on 19 October 2015 in Chicago (USA). Five researchers will compete with the audience deciding who's performance is the best. The winner will win the grand prize of a trip to Europe for a science communication training, a meeting with European Commission research policy officers and a meeting with experts at a European research institution of his/her own choice.
