4th Science Slam of the Graduate Academy at the University of Rostock

True to the motto "Meet, get to know each other, get informed and exchange ideas", the University of Rostock's Research Camp took place for the 9th time in the atrium of the Konrad Zuse House on 18th November 2021.

The Science Slam of the Graduate Academy was a great success again this year and has established itself as a fixed component of the research camp. Six young researchers wowed the audience with a successful mix of science and entertainment. This year the nominated winner was, Dana Dohr, a staff member of the Clinic and Polyclinic for Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery "Otto Körner". She convinced the audience with her song about "Grandma's cochlear implant" and was rewarded with thunderous applause for her courage and creativity.

The Graduate Academy would like to thank once again all the science slammers for their great contributions.

We are already looking forward to next year's Science Slam!

Further impressions of this event can be found here.
