Are you ... a scientist with a creative streak? - ...looking for a new and exciting way to share your findings and love of science? - ...tired of having spent too many hours at conferences, wondering if there isn't a better way to impart knowledge?
If so, then look no further! EURAXESS has a way for you to spread the science word - at the first truly global Science Slam! Inaugurated in 2013, the EURAXESS Science Slam has become an annual event organized in ASEAN, Brazil, China, India, Japan and North America!
A Science Slam is a contest giving researchers based in India the chance to use their creativity and communication skils. It is a way how to show your research project to your peers as well as the wider public.
Researchers (all levels starting from PhD candidates) of all nationalities and research fields, including Social Sciences and Humanities, currently based in India are invited to participate!
How to join the competition:
1. Be creative and develop an original idea to present your research project to the world: Tap dancing, singing, old-school presentation, scientific equipment - everything is allowed.
2. Make a 5-minute max. video of the presentation to be held in the LIVE finals with your camera phone (or equivalent). Make sure the presentation is in English!
3. Send your video to firstname.lastname@example.org or upload it via Dropbox and share the link to the video with email@example.com including the information requested on the Terms and Conditions.
Submission deadline is 21 September. Then the review panel will select five best candidates who will be invited to the LIVE finals in Mumbai on 1 November 2014.
The first prize for the best final slammer in India is a free trip to Europe, including a field visit to the research insitute of your choice and top science communication training!
