Last Wednesday, the Hartmann Lab took par into the « My Research in 180s » competition. The aim of this competition open to anyone doing research, is to explain to a non-specialist audience in only 180 seconds the work done on a research question.
Only a single static slide is allowed and the candidates had to provide a good understanding of the background of the research question as well as its signifiance. Presenters had also to describe the key results, including the outcomes and the conclusion, following a clear and logical sequence. They also had to communicate in a langage appropriate to a non-specialist audience, explain terminology when necessary and spend adequate time on each element of their presentation.
