How to present your own research topic within three minutes in an easy, illustrative and entertaining way?

Accept the challenge and register for this year´s Science Slam as part of the Science Camp.

Up to seven young academics have the opportunity to climb up the stage courageously and to win the audience over their research.

Everything is allowed! Let your creativity run wild and connect your research with entertainment. Take a step into scientific communication.

In the run-up to the Science Slam, the participants get the chance to prepare for their appearance on stage within a workshop that is held exclusively for that purpose.

At the end, the audience decides for a winner.

What awards await the winning contribution? The faculties receive a challenge cup, the participants a book voucher worth € 100.

The Science Slam is organized by the Graduate Academy of the University of Rostock. To prepare their contribution, the Graduate Academy offers all slammers free participation in a two-day training workshop. The workshop is expected to take place on November 03 and 10, 2022. The workshop will be led by Ms. Kira Ludwig (Redekunst und Demokratie - Rhetorik-Seminare, Coaching, Präsentationen).

The Science Slam is awarded as a faculty prize. In the preliminary stages, the faculties are called upon to submit an contribution via the Pro-Rector for Research, Talent Development and Equal Opportunities. We ask interested parties to contact the faculties.
