Scholarly communication | Presentation

Starting point
„And what do you do?“ sounds like a simple question. Yet answering it can also be infinitely complicated. It’s an art and challenge to break down what is on the one hand complex and on the other hand so familiar to you: your research.

Why not use the „Science Pitch“ to contribute your expertise in a comprehensible and pin-nailed manner to arouse interest in your research. In this training we will work out how you bring across what makes you and your research stand out.


  • You can explain the content and added value of your research in a comprehensible and memorable way.
  • You know the structure of a science pitch.
  • You know how to arouse and maintain the interest of your audience in the pitch.


  • Structure of a science pitch and possible creative elements
  • Extraction of a clear core statement and its uniqueness
  • Comprehensible and convincing language

You will work out your own science pitch in practical exercises and be given the opportunity for a presentation, followed by individual feedback. Max. number of participants: 8.

Scientific staff of the TU Berlin, who would like to present their own qualifications and research in a memorable way. Student workers are welcome, subject to availability.
