Audience Award

This year, we want to give our visitors of the Research Festival of Life Sciences the opportunity to award their own preferred poster.

For several years, the Wuschel is a mascot and an important part of the Research Festival.   Every visitor receives a Wuschel at the registration desk located at the foyer on the ground floor Study Center of the Faculty of Medicine. With this Research Festival mascot, you can place it on your poster of choice which you personally consider to be the most successful one.

Please make sure that you do not attach the Wuschel directly to the poster, so that the author has the opportunity to continue using his poster afterwards.

Award criteria

The awarding of the prize should not be based on private interests. Please include the following points in your award:

  • clear statement of the poster
  • structuring of the poster
  • optical incentive

Award ceremony

Please stick your Wuschel on January 30, 2020 by 2 pm on your preferred poster.

The organizing team will determine the most awarded poster(s).  In case of a tie between two or more posters, the prize will be awarded to the winners in equal parts.

The prize includes a certificate and a voucher for scientific literature to all awarded prizes for the Research Festival of Life Sciences.

The winner of the audience award is also asked to present his poster in a two-minute short lecture for the award ceremony.

The award ceremony will take place at the small lecture hall located on the first floor of the Faculty of Medicine Study Center on January 30, 2020 from 04:00 – 05:00 pm.
