The goal of the competition is to introduce complex scientific notions in easy-to-understand language. You can choose to present –in lay terms–a topic related to the effects of innovation in engineering or related to your ongoing research project. Participants must give an individual or group oral presentation with the help of a poster to showcase their work. The presentations will be delivered in French or English and will be assessed by a jury. Please note that the work must include aspects on sustainable development.
There are two rounds to the competition:
- The first round will take place on February 2023 (precise date to be confirmed), from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The candidates will showcase their posters and answer the judges’ questions;
- The second round will take place once the 6 finalists are known. Their recorded presentations will be assessed by other jury members at a later date.
Prizes to win
The winners will be awarded prizes totalling $2,000, to be presented beginning of March.
