19.11.2021 - Save-the-dateMedical Faculty's 20th Day of Research

The annual Day of Research is an event designed specifically for doctoral students of the Medical Faculty at the University of Duisburg-Essen. You can gather valuable impulses for your work – from scientists of all levels. This will always also result in new interesting research ideas. You will receive a lasting benefit from this! You will have the chance to present your project to an internal committee of reviewers at a digital conference, who will subsequently ask questions concerning your work and evaluate the individual presentations. What’s different this year: you will not create a poster, but a digital presentation. The assessments will take place in groups. And it’s worth the effort: You will learn a lot, receive the attention of expert scientists, and the best presentations will be awarded € 250 each!

You may apply for the Science Slam: Grab the chance to present your own research project to the public in an entertaining and trenchant five- to ten-minute talk that will get the audience interested in your topic. The best Science Slam will be awarded € 500! All other participants will receive € 100 each.
