TEDx Maastricht and Maastricht University PhD Pitch Night

Maastricht’s first ever PhD Pitch Night is coming.
It’s going to give you a taste of what UM’s finest researchers are working on.
Like a speed date with knowledge.

PhD candidates will have 3 minutes to pitch their research to you and see if they can secure a place on the TEDx Maastricht stage.

For a PhD topic worthy of the stage we will award a 6 minute talk on the famous red dot at TEDx Maastricht, October 12, 2018.

Come down and support our local talent. You’ll learn a wealth of information, in a tiny time frame.
*All pitches will be in English*

Be sure to arrive early to this FREE event so you can secure a place in the audience. (Snacks and drinks will be provided, as well as networking time)

Want to apply to Pitch?
Is your PhD worthy of the stage?
