The GFFA Science Slam will take place at the GFFA in the BMEL-Hall 23a during the Grüne Woche on 19 January 2024.
Within the topic “Food Systems for Our Future: Joining Forces for a Zero Hunger World”, four slammers will give a ten minute presentation of their research subject in English – live on stage in Berlin!
Our GFFA Science Slam is a competition in which presenters get the opportunity to introduce their scientific research topic. The main aim is to communicate scientific concepts to a mixed, technically interested, but predominantly non-scientist audience. The focus will not be as much on competition as on communication of a specialist topic in a way that stimulates discussion and on interactions between the presenter and the audience.
After the slam presentations, the audience rates these presentations in the form of an online vote. Not only the scientific contents but also the comprehensibility and the entertainment value of the presentations will be rated. The slammer with the highest audience rating receives a prize at the end of the event.
The application deadline for the Science Slam 2024 has now passed. The names and topics of the participants will be published here in mid-December.
For the fifth time, the Science Slam took place as part of the 2023 GFFA, organized by BMEL and the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR). In this short presentation competition, five scientists from Italy, Lebanon, India, Germany, and South Africa presented their research topics in ten-minute Science Slam presentations. Lia Orr took 1st place in the Science Slam with her lecture on the topic “Food for Thought – A child dreams of an apple, and a scientist helps.”
