At the end of this course (only a few weeks away now) you will present the outcome of your project during a poster presentation. Here follows a few guidelines to keep in mind when creating your posters:
- We do not expect scientific poster presentations
- Focus on the most important elements from your project, rather than trying to include everything you have done. Don’t worry, the examiner will read the complete reports.
- Include a brief background of your challenge and region, but focus mainly on the solution you have created.
- Make sure your solution is presented in a clear and concise way: someone with no prior knowledge should be able to understand how and why your solution is suitable to address your challenge in your region.
- Create a clear structure for your poster, e.g. making use of clear headings.
- Make good use of visuals. Long pieces of texts are not suitable for a poster.
- If you do not use your own visuals (e.g. your own drawings or pictures) make sure to include the source of the images.
- Your poster must the size of A1.
Apart from these points, feel free to be creative and present your project how you think you can communicate it the best way.
During the final presentation evening we expect all group members to be present and active (meaning, being able to address questions, as well as ask questions to other groups).
Good luck with these final steps in the project!
