Campustalks is an initiative by the rectorate of Vrije Universiteit Brussel, developed and organized by Crosstalks since 2009. The idea is to enhance community building among the many institutions and people associated with VUB.
The first objective of Campustalks is to present an interdisciplinary mix of research projects currently running at VUB, EhB and ULB, across all faculties and departments.
In the second place Campustalks reaches out to all universities in Belgium. This in order to exchange topnotch and innovative research projects between the universities and to enhance their impact.
Last but not least Campustalks wants to be an open exchange platform for future collaborations with innovative industries, architects and artists in Belgium.
The setup is based on the PechaKucha format. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds. No more, no less. A challenging and uptempo format for a dynamic way of storytelling. This keeps research presentations concise, the interest level up and room for crosstalking afterwards...
