Show your phd !

Let your imagination run wild !

Show your PhD is a competition in which you can combine your research subject with your artistic passion !

Created in the framework of Mons 2015, European Capital of Culture, the “Show your PhD” competition offers a platform for the cultural expression of science.

It is an opportunity for all scientists to put their artistic sensibility at the service of science : choose the medium that thrills you to popularise your research. The disciplines can be varied: drawing, painting, dancing, singing, video, music, cooking, macramé, humour… surprise us !

This year, we are accepting proposals in teams. This is the time to motivate your colleagues around a common project!

At the end of the presentation of your work, a grand prize will be offered to the person who will seduce our jury composed of experts in art and science. A participation prize will be awarded to all candidates.


Registrations to Show Your PhD 2024 are closed.

Mention the name of the candidate (or of the team representative and other team members for group projects), your research topic, the type of performance you plan to do and a few words on how you think you can link the two.

The competition rules can be accessed here.

If you have any questions, please contact us at aurelie.vachaudez@umons.ac.be or marine.valverde@umons.ac.be

We hope to see you soon!
