Party with the braniacs

A panel of judges made up of external and internal experts will choose the winners. Each of the brains will battle, in English, for 3 main prizes in each category of DKK 10,000, donated by Novo Nordisk and Chr. Hansen, to be used in an academically relevant context.

The junior research café ‘Juniorforskercafé’ at the Faculty is hosting 15 Minutes of Brain this year.

The brain bashing’s will culminate in a celebration hosted by LIFE at A-vej, to which all of the contestants and members of the audience are invited.
