On 7 November at Porcelænshaven you can experience CBS PhD students pitch the essence of their research in a clear and precise 3-minute presentation.

They will compete in front of an audience and a jury of Danish business leaders who will award the best pitch of the day with a main prize of DKK 20,000 as a research travel grant, on behalf of The Carlsberg Bequest.

CBS PhD students contribute significantly to academia by introducing new and innovative knowledge within the field of social sciences and business research. At PhD Pitch 2017 the students are challenged to communicate their complicated academic findings to a wider audience.
