International Science Slam

Call for Participation

International Science Slam at the Faculty of Sciences


You are currently working on your Master’s thesis or just completed the most interesting scientific project? You would like to share your findings with your fellow students across subject borders?

Take part in FAU’s first International Science Slam at the Faculty of Sciences.

Science Slams are a relatively new form of academic communication. Researchers make their work accessible to the interested public. They present complex issues in an entertaining and creative way. Every participant gets 10 minutes to handle the delicate task of capturing the audience’s attention and making it laugh, wonder and learn at the same time.


For our first science slam, we would like to give the students in our international master programs a chance to present their own research. German students are just as welcome as our fellow students from abroad.

Presentation language will be English.

When and where

Tuesday, 11th December, 6pm

H2, Egerlandstr. 3 (access via “Roter Platz”)


What you get from it

It is a great chance to meet other motivated students and broaden your network. You will have the opportunity to get a new perspective on your research project and refine your presentation skills. We invite all participants to an afternoon session with Philipp Schrögel, an experienced Slammer and renowned expert in academic communication. Philipp will give you valuable advice on presentation techniques and help you to add the final touch to your presentation.

How to apply

Please send an e-Mail with the title of your presentation and an entertaining 3-sentence abstract to The deadline is 11th November. Up to 8 students get the chance to present.
