SmallTalk – Finally held on-site again

Every year, bachelor students from the nanosciences program organize their own small-scale conference, known as “SmallTalk.” This event provides an opportunity to present the results they’ve obtained as part of the block courses. This year, SmallTalk was once again a real highlight — and not only because the small group size meant that the meeting could be held on-site again.

Each of the 12 students gave a 20-minute talk on a topic of their choice from one of the eight block courses that students complete at the end of the bachelor’s program. In addition, the students presented findings from another of the popular laboratory internships in the form of a poster. Just as at a large-scale conference, the poster session in particular served as an excellent opportunity for scientific exchange.

This year, in addition to the awards for the best talk and best poster, there was also an award for the best poster design. At the end of the meeting, Professor Christian Schönenberger had the great pleasure of presenting the awards to Georg Angehrn (best talk), Nevil Goepfert (best poster) and Alexa Dani (best poster design), thereby bringing the successful event to a close.
