Jury

Text

Exporecerca Jove’s jury is organized by MAGMA, Associació per Promoure la Recerca Jove. It is composed by a large group of qualified experts from different fields of knowledge from outside the association. They work selflessly dedicating part of their time to evaluate the projects presented in the fair.

WHY IS THE JURY IMPORTANT?

Thanks to the jury’s rating, MAGMA, Associació per Promoure la Recerca Jove can grant the Exporecerca Jove awards that allow the participants to continue the dissemination of their research. These prizes consist on the registration to other showrooms, fairs or meetings at a national an international level. You can check the prizes list in awards section. The quality of the assessments lie in an ideas exchange, in a one-on-one conversation between two researchers, an experienced one –the jury’s member- and inexperienced and novice one –the participant- that establish a dialogue about a research. In this sense, we encourage the jury not only to rate the work, but also to comment and to advice the participant about possible improvements to make in a future in the shown research.

PAST EDITIONS JURY OPINIONS

XVIII Exporecerca Jove:
"Me lo comentó una compañera de trabajo … y confieso que antes de ir no estaba muy convencido de participar. Fui el jueves por la tarde con la idea de hacer la valoración de los trabajos rápidamente. Lo que me encontré allí me sorprendió enormemente. Tanto que volví el viernes porque me quedaron trabajos sin evaluar y además quería conocer algunos que no estaban en mi lista. Tras esta experiencia he recuperado la confianza en el futuro de la ciencia, he disfrutado enormemente y espero que el año que viene me permitáis volver a participar de jurado…."

XVII Exporecerca Jove:
"Ha estat una experiència molt enriquidora. Vaig tenir l'oportunitat d'escoltar recerques molt interessats i adonar-me que hi ha joves amb voluntat de crear un futur millor. Em vaig quedar amb ganes de més i no tinc cap dubte que repetiré."
 
97% of the XXI Exporcerca Jove jury recommend the experience with a 9.2 out of 10

HOW ARE THE PROJECTS EVALUATED?

Each Jury member will evaluate between 8 and 10 projects assigned previously, according to its priorities. This year, the jury will have a specific rubric for each phase. Once the evaluations have been sent, they will be collected by an informatic program that will calculate the ponderated sum and the mean of the evaluation of each category and of the global valoration, obtaining an index of the project quality.

What to do on the evaluation day

Previously to the Online Phase, Jury members have to register in MAGMA web page. When the different Exposition Sections start, juries will have to enter the assigned virtual room, where they will evaluate 4 projects during 1,30 hours.
