The researcher who wins the University’s competition will compete in the national final in Stockholm in November/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’s theatre on Thursday, 12th October. Individual coaching will be given in August and September, with a 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 Matthew Tompkins, postdoctoral fellow in Cognitive Science, Department of Philosophy, who won the national Forskar Grand Prix competition 2022, says:
– I am happy to have been awarded the prize, even if the win still feels quite surreal! My experience being part of the Forskar Grand Prix competition was great, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to present my work on the connections between magic and psychology. I have benefited greatly from the coaching in Lund and from Vetenskap & Allmänhet.
