Pitch your PhD!

Pitch your phd

A Pitch your PhD! session organised by and for our PhD candidates was offered during the CAPHRI online Research Meeting on 23 November to give PhDs the opportunity to present their work to the CAPHRI community. 

All CAPHRI PhD candidates were invited to submit a pre-recorded 3-minute video pitch of their research project. This work could either consist of research results, but also of work in progress, or even a research proposal. 33 CAPHRI PhD candidates submitted their pitch about their research. After a careful pre-selection, 8 of them were selected to pitch their work at the CAPHRI online Research Meeting and had a chance to win 500€ to spend on their own professional development. 

We were proud to see so many high-quality pitches! you watch all submitted pitches here
