Student ePoster Pitch Competition

Help advance the science and technology of sustainable proteins by sharing your research.

The Student ePoster Pitch Competition is designed to give student researchers an opportunity to highlight their achievements, demonstrate their ability in scientific presentations, and receive important feedback and mentoring from industry leaders.

All ePoster abstract submissions whose presenting authors are full-time students are automatically entered into the Student ePoster Pitch Competition. See the Abstract Submission Guidelines (.pdf) for details.

Six finalists will be selected to give 5-minute oral presentations which will be broadcast live online as a highlight of the meeting program, and on social media. After the presentations, the audience will be encouraged to vote for their favorite pitch!
