Researcher Ilse Mariën was voted the best SuperMinds Talk 2013
On the 5th of March 2013, SuperMinds took place in Ghent. SuperMinds is an event where iMinds researchers come together to form an open dialog about how to forge fresh connections between the researchers, to integrate different elements from one’s education and experience, and bring the researcher to bear on new challenges.
The competition aspect of the day consisted of eight TED-like talks, selected from a large number of applicants and coached during a couple of weeks. All of them delivered an inspiring 10 minutes talk.
The jury faced the difficult task to select one of those talks as the big winner of the day. Finally the jury reached a decision: researcher Ilse Mariën (iMinds-SMIT, Vrije Universiteit Brussel) inspired everyone with her plea for academic openness. Her emotional call for immediate action moved the crowd.
