The Impromptu 2020 will be comprised of two parts:

1. 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.

2. On the 2nd day, the external speakers will present their own research in a more formal setting. The second day will be funded by UNIL
