Did you write your bachelor or master thesis in 2019 or 2020 and would you like to present your thesis at the National Congress for Biology Students? Then enroll by sending your thesis to: firstname.lastname@example.org!
Out of all the submitted theses, a selection will be made of the best bachelor and three best master students. If you are one of those lucky few, you receive the honour of presenting your thesis (10-15 min) in the conference room in Burgers' Zoo in front of a huge audience consisting of fellow-students, researchers, teachers and other biology enthusiasts. A renowned jury will get the opportunity to question you in order to get the story clear. At the end of the night, this jury will determine the winner of ‘the Darwin’. The jury consists of renowned biologists from board of directors, business life, and the academic world.
The student with the best thesis will receive 'The Darwin' and a publication in Bionieuws! In the edition after the conference, there will be a page available for describing your thesis, your plans for the future or for an interview (all is debatable). Your publication in Bionieuws will be read by the 5300 biologists who are affiliated with the Dutch Institute for Biology (NIBI)! Students that were very close but were not selected for the oral presentations will be granted the opportunity to present their thesis in the foyer by means of a poster presentation. The audience will vote for the best poster and, of course, the winner will receive a prize!
The deadline for submitting your thesis is September 30th 2020.
