The IdEx (Initiatives in Excellence at the Université de Bordeaux):
The IdEx is a very selective national program that awarded an excellence fund to a select few universities in France. The Universitié de Bordeaux is proud to be one of these rare institutions and uses this fund to support excellence in research and innovation in order to promote the reputation of the Université around the world. The IdEx is a Platinum Sponsor of the meeting and, among other things, sponsors the Flash Poster Presentation Competition.
In this competition, 6 posters from young investigators (postdoctoral fellow, resident, graduate student or medical student) will be selected during the first two poster sessions (17th and 18th). The first authors will be asked (on the 18th at the first session after lunch) to present their work during a Flash Poster Presentation (3 minutes using slides) at the end of the 18th last session. The presentation will be needed during the afternoon coffee break.
- The top ranked presentation will receive a 500 € award to be given at the award ceremony.
- The second ranked presentation will receive a 250 € award at the award ceremony.
- The third ranked presentation will receive a 200 € award at the award ceremony.
- All 6 selected Posters presenters will receive a ticket to attend the Gala evening.
To participate, you simply have to be a young investigator and to prepare a few slides to present if you are selected. Easy… and FUN!
