Description

The main aim of this CUSO event is to learn how to present your research in a clear and informative way to a scientific audience outside your own field.

The medium that will be used is the so-called chalk talk. Every participant is expected to present their research in a 5-10 minutes (10 min max!) chalk talk.

Afterwards, the presentations will be discussed and reviewed.

In the second part of this CUSO event, world-leading experts from the Bacterial Cell Biology field (Prof. Geraldine Laloux, Prof. Nina van Sorge and Prof. Dirk-Jan Scheffers) will also give a chalk talk and will discuss what they think was crucial for them to make a career in this field.

In addition, please note that normally everyone who wants to attend your defense should have the covid certificate.
