If we want people to get excited about, and ultimately support research, we need them to understand it. Talking about research in an accessible format is a highly-coveted and often, underdeveloped skill. Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer research charity, wants to change that. So, we are challenging researchers to describe their research project in 3 minutes, in language accessible to a non-specialist audience in an engaging way. Breast Cancer Now will be hosting ‘Science Simplified’, a competition at the 2018 NCRI Conference to showcase the top research pitches in front of a live audience.
Participants will be shortlisted based on a short written project description and 2-minute video recording submitted to Breast Cancer Now. The top participants will be invited to participate in the live competition with the title of Overall Winner (£750 prize) and Audience Favourite (£450 prize) at stake! Competition details to follow shortly.
