Impact is a key concept for research – it is the way to make a difference! Please share your reseach with all KTH Energy Researchers and give participants of the KTH Energy Dialogue 2021 a taste of the best energy research at KTH. We welcome all KTH energy researchers to present a poster - Big challenges are solved together!

A poster competition will be held during the KTH Energy Dialogue 2021 on the 18 November 2021, organised by the KTH Energy Platform. All KTH researchers are welcome to submit a poster, and a jury will select the three best posters with respect to three criteria;

  1. Innovative design,
  2. Clarity and communication qualities, and
  3. Accessibility for a broad audience without specific knowledge in the research field. 


The three winners will receive a full day communication training with feedback organized by professionals from the public science organization Vetenskap & Allmänhet, value: SEK 5,000. It covers training for selecting material, preparing communication, blog writing, video etc.
