With the support of Falling Walls Foundation, we have invited 10 scientists to present a pitch-off of research projects to be transformed into a viral story across media channels. Following each pitch by an up-and-coming scientist, a panel of media experts will share feedback on the potential they see in each project and offer insights from the perspective of their area of expertise and industry specialization. In addition, up to 3 scientists from the audience have the chance to win the opportunity to present a wildcard pitch and share their latest research on stage.
