After a lecture by Dr. Christopher von der Does on "Good Scientific Practice", the focus was on interdisciplinary exchange. The young scientists practiced explaining their research briefly and convincingly. The session was modelled on the so-called elevator pitch, in which a product or idea is presented in one to three minutes. "For me, this exercise was enriching, as I now feel much more confident in getting to the heart of my research as vividly as possible," says Stefan Conrad, a doctoral researcher in the "Demonstrators" area. Similar to the livMatS pitch, trainer Dr. Djahane Banoo was also concerned with comprehensibility and making people curious. In a workshop, she taught participants the basics of scientific publishing and writing.
