Thursday 29th of September, the 2nd Researcher Grand Prix took place. PhD candidate Ole Andreas Alsos from our department was one of the ten contestants. Ole gave a very good 4 minutes presentation of his research on how technology can be a barrier in the communication between doctors and patients.
Within 4 minutes each researcher had to explain what their research field was, what their research project and contribution to the field was, and win the crowd by getting the audience and the judges interested.
The quality of this year's presentations were great, and the winner of the NTNU event was Siv Gøril Brandtzæg from the Department of Scandinavian studies and comparative literature. Her research project was Trivialromanen på 1700-tallet.
Ole Alsos was the first researcher from our department to take part in this kind of event. We thank Ole for his excellent presentation, and hope more of our PhD students will be inspired to follow in his footsteps next year!
