Get ready for Innovation Week’s student/postdoc Poster Pitch Contest—with 10 prizes of $1,000 available. The contest will take place Friday, Sept. 29, but contestants are encouraged to attend a preparation session Tuesday, Sept. 26, from 10 to 11 a.m. in Sears think[box].
Preparing for the Innovation Week Poster Pitch Contest
All students and postdocs are welcome to attend this session to learn how to develop a two-minute poster pitch for a broad audience. Steve Fening, Case Western Reserve University Associate Vice President for Research and Managing Director of the Case-Coulter Translational Research Partnership, will share the essential elements to creating a concise pitch and will emphasize a conversational, jargon-free approach.
Students and postdocs should apply these skills when they present their research at the Innovation Week Poster Pitch Contest.
Then, on Friday, Sept. 29, from noon to 3 p.m., students and postdocs are invited to present their two-minute presentations to showcase their innovation and research! Ten $1,000 awards will be given to the top 10 presenters! All members of the campus community are encouraged to attend and hear these pitches.
Innovation Week, a celebration of the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of the Case Western Reserve University Community, is a series of presentations, workshops, tours and pitch competitions taking place Sept. 26–29. View the full schedule and register for events today.
