In the same vein as the Acfas My Thesis in 180 seconds competition, this is the perfect opportunity for participants to practice communication for the general public, make their research known, and share their passion. with creativity. And this is a unique opportunity for the public to discover in one evening the variety of projects that flourish within our ecosystem!

« J’ai beaucoup apprécié l’expérience de présenter mes travaux à cette première édition de MPRI180. La plateforme GatherTown était très bien adaptée à l’exercice à distance, car malgré le fait que l’on présentait depuis chez soi dans son salon, on avait vraiment l’impression d’y être lorsqu'on faisait monter son petit avatar sur l’estrade avant d’allumer sa caméra et de se jeter à l’eau ! J’étais heureuse de me prêter au jeu, et je remercie vivement IVADO de donner toutes ces opportunités aux étudiant.e.s de pouvoir parler de leur recherche en dehors du cadre classique et un peu rigide de la présentation en conférence ou de la rédaction d’un article scientifique. En cherchant au fil du texte des images percutantes ou des tournures de phrase plus simples, cela permet de prendre du recul vis-à-vis de ses travaux de recherche et de débroussailler ses idées. Alors vous aussi n’hésitez pas à participer à la prochaine édition, vous saurez enfin quoi répondre à vos parents lorsqu’ils vous demandent ce que vous faites dans votre projet de recherche IVADO ! »
