The output of Technology Scouting: notes on how to make technical-scientific presentations (and not only)


Fri 08 May 2020

Event description

The meeting will be held via the web. Members will receive a communication on how to access the virtual room.

Slides (typically in power points) are one of the most popular tools to support those presenting in activities such as scientific dissemination, sharing of business results, commercial presentations, training, dissemination of an idea, etc. We are so used to seeing and “reasoning” in terms of slides that these have become not only a tool to aid presentation but also a real document format for archiving and consulting results (like and often in place of books , articles, magazines, …).

Part of this success is due to the fact that slides are usually considered a “fast” tool (in preparation and use) and “free” (ie without the need to respect some predefined structure which in defining constraints, causes an increase in preparation times) … but are these really the strengths of the tool? Or are not rather the large and small that make it a truly effective tool from a communicative point of view?

This webinar is an opportunity to share some notes and considerations, collected over years of experience of presentations (made, enjoyed and above all “suffered”), on how to create slides for technical-scientific disclosures and presentations. Since slide power points are one of the main outputs of CRIT technology scouting, examples extracted from them will be analyzed and commented on in the light of this sharing.

The link for access to the online platform and for participation in the webinar will be sent to those registered on the day preceding the event
