how to prepare a good exposure and a good stand

If you would like to go to countries around the world to present your research project, take the opportunity and prepare the best exhibition you can. In this way, you will get better ratings from the jury and you will have more chances to win an Exporecerca Jove award.

To make this possible, we encourage you to follow the recommendations below.
  • Take a look at the rubric where you can see what aspects the jury will focus on and how you should do it to have a good evaluation.
  • To facilitate the work of the jury, participants are encouraged to prepare a presentation of their work that does not exceed 10 minutes.
  • Prepare good audiovisual material (images, posters, mock-ups…) that will help you make your presentation more enjoyable and will also be valued by the jury.
  • We value the clarity and simplicity of the exhibitions very positively. However, you should try to tailor your speech to the person you are explaining your project to.
  • To be able to opt for all the prizes, with knowing how to defend the project in Catalan/Spanish and English.
  • Finally, we encourage you to wear the XXIII Exporecerca Jove de la T-shirt.
