Joint IRB BCN - ICFO PhD cool-off

June 21st, 2018 Organized by ICONS

The IRB Barcelona student council and the ICFO student chapter ICONS have joined forces and we invite you to our first event together.

This first edition will kick-off with interactive flash-talks followed by networking between the PhD students of the two institutes accompanied with refreshments and snacks. The flash-talk format features 5 pairs of an IRB BCN-ICFO PhD student mix each having prepared one pictographic slide about their research topics. During the first minute the IRB BCN student has to try her/his best to explain the work of the ICFO student and in the following three minutes the ICFO student explains his/her own work. Then the roles are reversed. After all the presentations, the audience has to elect the 3 most convincing presenters who will win Amazon vouchers. Note that IRB Barcelona is the research institute for biomedicine and ICFO for photonics so afterwards there will be plenty of time to discuss all the questions and comments while enjoying some drinks and snacks.

We are really excited about this joint cool-off event sponsored by BIST! So please register here since we have only limited places. AND we need volunteers for the 5 IRB BCN-ICFO pairs!!! Do not be shy and contact as soon as possible. More details will be provided soon.
