  • Poster as catalyst for networking

Poster design

  • Structure and layout
  • Best/ worst-practice examples

Poster pitch

  • Presenting yourself, your research and the poster itself
  • Learn to interact with the audience (leading with questions, answering questions, discussion)

You have the opportunity to receive a video feedback of your presentation.
