MEDTEQ Generation Competition

General information for students

Since its creation in 2013, MEDTEQ has made it a point of honor to support students, among other things by integrating them into all the innovation projects supported by the consortium, but also by organizing competitions. During the last two years, during the MEDTEQ Innovation Summit, we have set up a competition with an innovative and dynamic formula through a "Pecha Kucha" presentation.

It is a two-minute presentation associated with the projection of successive slides every 20 seconds, where there can only be images on the slides. This constraint imposes on the speaker eloquence and a sense of narrative, rhythm, conciseness, but also graphic expression. For students (from Master to PhD), this competition is a unique opportunity to showcase the excellence of their research work in medical technology.

Important: It is essential to download the regulations and read them carefully. Indeed, any file that does not comply with the rules will automatically be excluded from the competition.
