Get ready to see the crème de la crème of science communication perform live on the stage of LUX! In just 3 minutes, young Radboud scientists from all disciplines will tell their story (in Dutch or English) to a live audience and jury. Powerpoint presentations are strictly prohibited, so no borings lists or charts. Instead, you will see science on stage like you’ve never seen it before.
On Monday night March 25th, the eight finalists from different faculties of Radboud University and Radboudumc will compete for the grand jury prize and the audience award.
Besides pitches, there will also be a musical performance by The Student Big Band from Nijmegen, and a literary closing by writer Lisa Weeda from production company De Nieuwe Oost. We hope to see you on March 25th!
The Student Big Band Nijmegen plays classics from the Big Band genre, but also more ‘inventive’ music like emerging jazz and fusion. At Radboud Talks they will appear in a smaller but no less exciting ensemble.
Lisa Weeda (1989) writes prose, theater and nonfiction. She makes literary programs for Mooie Woorden in Utrecht and also she teaches at ArtEZ creative writing. In 2016 Lisa published a literary non fiction novel: De benen van Petrovski, about her journey to Ukraine. Lisa is currently working on her novel which will be published at De Bezige Bij.
