The Fundació Catalana per a la Recerca i la Innovació (FCRI) and 11 Catalan universities organize the competition “Explain your thesis in 4 minutes”. With the support of the Catalan Government, this event contributes both to promote research spreading and turn back science to society.

It is focused on PhD candidates who are challenged to explain their investigation to a general audience in a maximum time of 4 minutes with a plain vocabulary and easy to understand structure.

Noemí Balà, co-founder of Aortyx, presented her thesis “Disseny d'un dispositu mèdic pel tractament de les disseccions aòrtiques” won the Universitat Ramón Llull (URL) semifinal and represented the URL at the Final competition on June 25th, 2020. Find the presentation here:
