Do you want to be better at summing up what is important about your research and receive help and support to present your results? If so, perhaps you would like to take part in this year’s Researchers’ Grand Prix. It is a competition in which you 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 compete in the national final in Stockholm in November.

Signing up for the University’s competition gives you an opportunity to:

  • receive individual coaching in presentation techniques
  • 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 Tuesday, 1st October, in front of an audience of around 600 high school students. 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 Sofie Mohlin, associate professor at the Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund, who won the national Forskar Grand Prix competition in 2023, says about taking part in the competition. 

– It is not uncommon for academia to be seen as inaccessible and boring, and since I really love my job, I want to change that image. For my own part, it is also important that the stereotype of how a researcher looks and behaves is erased, for example by showing that even a woman with two children, and with no academic background at all, can lead her own research group.
