The finalists of the scientific pitch competition Radboud Talks have been determined! A jury consisting of high school students from the Canisius college in Nijmegen chose the contestants who presented their research in the most clear and charismatic way during the two preliminaries on 11 and 13 March. On Monday night 25 March, those eight scientists will compete in LUX for the prize of 1,000 euro.

The eight diverse scientists from the Radboud university and Radboud university medical center will present their research on 25 March in short, clear and attractive pitches.

The audience can also vote for their favorite. Next to the science, there will be music by the Students Big Band Nijmegen and a literary summary by author Lisa Weeda from ‘De Nieuwe Oost’.
