Poster presentations and pitches
Moonshots for Health - Communicate your research to key players in Life Sciences & Health
As a PhD candidate or postdoc you are invited to present your research at Innovation for Health with a pitch and a poster presentation. By doing so, you will get the opportunity to:
- Present your research to key players.
- Practice how to present your research to a diverse audience (useful for science outreach and grant applications).
- Broaden your knowledge of the Dutch and Belgian Life Science (industry) sector for your career development.
On the exhibition floor, you will have the opportunity to showcase your research summarized in a (A0) poster. Next to that, you have 3-minutes to convince the audience of the ingenuity, quality and eventual (social) impact of your research in a pitch. With your poster and pitch you can explain the future implications of your research and which major scientific or societal problem you are addressing.

+ Graphs are labelled and only included when they are relevant for the story.
+ The poster should not have distracting or unnecessary decorations.
+ Showcase the overall context of your research and how your results fit in. Focus on the overall scientific/societal problem, the possibilities to solves this, what the contribution of your research is to solving this problem and how your data supports the solution.
"The Innovation for Health conference provides a perfect and broad showcase of current developments in Healthcare. An excellent opportunity to match these developments with your research activities."
