What's EURAXESS Science Slam Japan 2014?
A Science Slam is a presentation where researchers present their work in front of a non-expert audience. The focus is on making research interesting, engaging, entertaining and thrilling to the audience.
The event will take place on Monday, 10 November 2014 at Tokyo Institute of Technology.
This will give researchers (young and less young!) of any nationality based in Japan the chance to showcase their work and talent for giving a lively and interesting presentation.
Each presentation will be performed in English in less than 10 minutes and can be supported by video, audio material, slides or any other kind of media, as well as by scientific equipment.
The event is open to researchers from all fields of research and without age restrictions!
Costs for transportation to and local accommodation in Tokyo will be covered by EURAXESS Links Japan to the participants based outside of Tokyo.
The performance will be graded by the audience and the best performer will win a 4 days trip to Bonn, in the heart of Europe, have the opportunity to participate in a science communication workshop, and meet with a research institution of his/her choice within the European Research Area!
How to participate as a competitor?
Please create a 3-minute sample video of the talk you intend to give at the EURAXESS Science Slam Japan 2014 event.
Don't forget, this has to be scientific (of course), synthetic (better be!), but also creative and fun! Then post it to your Youtube account and post a link to your video in the comment section of EURAXESS Links Japan's video trailer for the event here.
Alternatively, you can also have a 3-minute live presentation through EURAXESS Links Japan's Skype account.
