Finale 4TU.Health poster competition: Three prizes for the best posters

Friday, 24 March 2023

On Thursday 23 March, three prizes were awarded during the finale of the digital 4TU.Health poster competition. This poster competition is part of the 4TU.Health collaboration. PhD students in the field of health and technology were challenged to present their research in an open, engaging way. All participants were given the opportunity to briefly present their poster and view other posters. The winning PhD student may use the prize to visit another TU or set up research together with another TU. This is the first year that this PhD competition is being organized within 4TU.Health.

45 PhD candidates from the four technical universities participated in this competition. The aim of the competition is to offer PhD students a platform for sharing their research, but also to identify possible future collaborations. Prior to the presentation, the posters were presented online. Thus, prior to the finale, PhD students assessed each other's work and provided suggestions for possible collaboration. In the finals, all participants were allowed to pitch, after which the best eight were allowed to pitch again for a larger group.

The eight finalists were: Marco Locarno from TUD. Nina Doorn, Pardis Farjam and Hugo Markus from UT. From TU/e Dennis van de Sande, Terese Helström, Lisanne Bergefurt and Emma Moonen pitched in the finale.

The three prizes went to:
