It is a competition in which you are to present your research in a way that is as easily accessible and engaging as possible – in only four minutes.
The researcher who wins the University’s competition will progress to the national final in Stockholm on 1 December.
Signing up for the University’s competition gives you an opportunity to:
• receive individual coaching in presentation technique
• stand on stage and make a public presentation
• practice summing up what is most important and interesting about your specific research – skills that can be used in other contexts such as conferences, seminars and pitching to funding bodies.
This year’s competition will be held in Helsingborg on 13th October. Individual coaching will be given in August and September, with a possible start-up meeting in June.
Your presentation can be in English or Swedish, depending on which language you feel most comfortable with.
This is what Michael Bossetta, researcher at the Department of Communication and Media, who won the national Researcher Grand Prix competition 2021, says: - That I won shows that people understand that social science and research on how we use technology and social media play as important a role as cancer research or any other research.
