Breaking Science

Increasingly, researchers are asked to explain their research in a (very) short timeframe and to an audience of lay people. Quite a challenge to explain something you are unravelling for years in just 3 minutes! But mastering the skill of pitching is very useful, for instance for obtaining personal grants. Breaking Science is a pitch contest for young researchers organized by Utrecht University, to practice and improve this skill.

Breaking Science is an incredible learning experience that pushes you out of your comfort zone, into that spotlight, with confidence and enthusiasm
