bioPITCH gathers all the posters that have been presented at the joint student poster symposium organized every semester by bioCEED and the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Bergen.
The Student Poster Symposium is organized locally at Marineholmen and is open to all. All posters are displayed for 4 hours, giving presenters plenty of time to discuss and debate with teachers, students, staff and visitors. Presenters are also given 1 minute at the beginning of the symposium to address the audience and pitch their work.
During the COVID-19 pandemic (spring 2020, fall 2020 and spring 2021), the symposium was moved online on Zoom for all course participants (staff, teachers and students) and streamed live on Youtube. Each student (or student group) was given 1 minute to present the poster, and the audience was given 1 minute to send peer reviewed feedback to the presenter via an online form.
Since fall 2021, the symposium has taken place at Vilvite, and runs now as a biannual event where students pitch their work (60 second-pitch) in the auditorium. All posters are displayed during the whole event at the mezzanine at Vilvite; students can present their research to all, get to discuss with teachers and peers, and get feedback from a broad audience during the viewing sessions.
The latest edition gathered approximately 46 posters and 160 students, teachers and staff in 7 courses.
Students learn to design their poster as a part of the course they are enrolled in. Additionally they may find resources and useful tips at bioWRITE
