At this entertaining event, four Science Slams lasting 10 minutes at most that relate to the main subject “Sustainable Land Use: Food Security Starts with the Soil” will be presented after a short welcome by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) and introduction by the facilitator. The slam presentations must be held in English. Simultaneous interpretation into German will be arranged. The audience will decide in the end in the form of a vote to whom the BMEL prize will be awarded.
What is a Science Slam?
A science slam is a science flash talk competition where the speakers, within a specified time, present their research topics to a mixed audience. The focus here is on communicating scientific concepts to a non-expert audience. The audience will assess the slams in form of a vote. Apart from the scientific contents, the comprehensibility and the entertainment value are also rated.
