Status Update Meeting in form of Science Slams
On the 19th and 26th of January 2023, the status update meeting took place in form of science slams. The doctoral candidates presented a series of short talks about their projects. Science slams are a form of science communication where scientists present their research in an entertaining and engaging way to a non-expert audience. They aim to make science accessible and interesting to the general public. The idea was to challenge the doctoral candidates, as they are required to condense their complex and technical research into a short, engaging presentation that can be understood by a non-expert audience, challenging them to use creative and innovative ways to communicate scientific concepts effectively.
At the end of the meeting, the candidates gave feedback to each other and voted for the best “slammers”.
