The third edition of the EURAXESS Science Slam Japan was a great success, thanks to our host the Tokyo Metropolitan University, our sponsor Cactus Communications, and of course thanks to the 5 Slammers and to all the attendees who came to see the live event or who watched it through our streaming channel.
The 5 finalists rivalled in originality and did their best to communicate their research, and gave a hard time to the nine debate groups who had to mark them and decide on a top-3!
In the end, the winners were:
3rd: Ms Lucy LAHRITA, with her Slam: “Turning trash into ca$h using the earth’s smallest inhabitants”
She won an interview to be published soon in this newsletter and online on his/her research subject and personal background!
2nd: Mr Shogo MATSUMOTO, with his Slam: “Maintenance of Bridges - numerical design and un-numerical maintenance“
He won a voucher to free English aditing of his next scientific article, offered by our partner Editage/Cactus Communications!
And 1st prize: Mr Muhammad FAJAR, with his Slam: “MISSION POSSIBLE: Super Nuclear Control Rods”
His desire to communicate, his original angle on the problematic of modern nuclear engineering, and creative use of several different media during his Slam won the audience’s hearts and minds! He won the trip to Europe to visit a research institution of his choice, next year in June, along with all other Slam winners in the 6 EURAXESS Links hubs!
You will soon get a glimpse of the event through pictures which will soon be available on our website, and through the videos of the Slam that we will soon upload on our YouTube channel, so please visit us online!
Thank you again and let’s look forward to the next edition!
