What are the Nano Talks?

The Nano Talks are a platform for inspiring and stimulating talks within the arts, sciences, and technologies. The Nano Talks strive to facilitate networking, provide a training platform for speakers to give talks to a broader audience, assist speakers in creating simple and generally understandable talks on complex issues, and inspire the audience with new ideas.

Here is some guiding information:

All Nano Talks are in English. While you prepare your talk, you might ask yourself: Why is my topic exiting? How can our society benefit from my work (in case you want to present your scientific research)? How and why would a news agency report on it? Keep in mind that the audience comes from a diverse background. So please keep your talk simple and understandable without dwelling to much on technical details. To ensure maximum intelligibility, the talks are generally limited to 10 minutes. This way, you are guaranteed to get the audience's full attention throughout the talk. Afterwards, there is a 10 minutes long questions and answers session.
