Creating a scientific poster (full day)


The participants of this workshop learn to communicate their research or project in a clear and convincing manner onto a presentation poster, tailored to their target audience.

Content of the workshop:

We will show you how to build up a strong scientific poster, step by step. A poster that is clear, that is actually being read by your audience and that adds value for both you and your audience.

What we will cover amongst other things:

  • How do you get your audience’s attention? (Why should they listen to you?)
  • Your poster pitch in one minute
  • Your poster layout
  • How to summarize a 30 page paper down to a single poster
  • Examples of successful research posters
  • Designing a poster and where to find good images

Online format:

Prior to the workshop, participants will receive a short video course and a preparatory assignment. On the course date, an online workshop (10:00 - 12:00) will be followed by feedback sessions on the posters in the afternoon.
