To achieve visibility in the technical/scientific community and successful transfer of findings into future research and development activities, a presentation of results and conclusions has to consider expectations and demands of the audience. Objective of the course is the achievement of basic knowledge about structured and targeted presentations. This includes presentations, technical reports and scientific manuscripts.

Presentations, reports and publications represent an essential part of reporting in science. In any case the presentation of relevant information has to be achieved in an environment which defines limits, e.g. duration, length, complexity. It is essential to understand requirements and expectations, which are defined by the audience, to target the own presentation precisely. This is a fundamental requirement to attract interest for the new findings and to achieve impact. A general guideline for presentation of scientific results is imparted. Differences between scientific reports, industrial reports, lectures, posters and scientific manuscripts will be discussed.

It is essential to understand requirements and expectations, which are defined by the audience, to target the own presentation precisely. This is a fundamental requirement to attract interest for the new findings and to achieve impact.

Initiation and execution of industrial projects requires consideration of specific aspects, dependent on size of enterprise, characteristics and dimension of project.

Following a short introduction to analyse the expectations of the audience and the strategy of a presentation, the participants will elaborate drafts for own presentations. Expected impact, content and methodology applied will be discussed.

Presentations will cover:

  • Short introduction of the own person (2 min)
  • Short presentation of own research results for a newspaper
  • Research report for industrial R&D staff
  • Report for decision makers / management
  • Visualisation of research / dimensions and relevance
  • Poster presentation
  • Manuscript for technical journal
  • Manuscript for scientific journal

Active participation during the course, presentations und manuscripts in written form, short oral presentations.
