During the KNCV online Evening of Chemistry on October 8th, the KNCV together with Jong KNCV organizes a Pitch competition for PhD candidates. 

Are you a PhD candidate and would you like to win 500 euros with a pitch about your research? Young KNCV gives you that chance! During the KNCV Chemistry 2020 Evening on October 8th, 3 PhD candidates will pitch their research in 3 minutes, live from the Parktheater in Eindhoven. The digital visitors of the Evening of Chemistry may vote afterwards and the winner will receive the Spotlight Prize and 500 euros!
 
You can participate in the preliminary round by making a short video of up to 1 minute about you and your research and share it with us before September 20th. You may e-mail the video to us, but we would like to see your video appear on the social media channels of Jong KNCV: Facebook, Twitter and/or Linkedin. We will contact the finalists on Thursday 24 September.

The Evening of Chemistry is a Dutch-language event, so the pitches will also be in Dutch. Of course, this does not have to be your mother tongue. We also encourage international PhD candidates, who have worked on their Dutch, to participate! If you have any questions about this, mail us at jong@kncv.nl and we will be happy to help you.
