IRIC among the participating institutions of Science POP!
Launched in the fall of 2022, the pan-Quebec science communication contest Science POP will take off in April 2023. The fifteen participating institutions, including IRIC, will hold their own internal competitions at the end of which the finalists will advance to the provincial final, scheduled for May 27 and 28, 2023. Science POP proposes three types of challenges: popularization, valorization and mobilization.
The popularization challenge will ask the pedagogy and creativity of the participants, who will have five minutes to explain their research project in an accessible manner.
The valorization challenge asks participants to highlight the innovative aspects and expected benefits of their project in the form of a press release and a two-minute flash presentation.
The mobilization challenge asks candidates to present a project, whether or not related to their research, that promotes the sustainable health of the Quebec population in ten minutes.
The IRIC internal competition will be held on Wednesday, April 12, 2023, in a 5-8 format and is open to the IRIC community only. The provincial final will be open to the general public. Good luck to all our participants!
