The first Science Battle on the 24th of September

The first Science Battle, organized by the EC2U Alliance (European Campus of City-Universities), will take place on the occasion of the European Researchers’ Night on September 24 at the University of Pavia.

What is a Science Battle?
A Science Battle is a fun competition that shows concretely how researchers tackle a new research subject while promoting science and research to the general public. This concept was initiated in 2016 at the University of Turku in Finland and is now the subject of competition between member universities of the EC2U Alliance.

How does it work? 
This year, for the 1st edition, 3 teams of 6 researchers from the universities of Pavia, Turku (Finland) and Poitiers (France) will compete simultaneously, remotely, on scientific and societal questions. The teams will be challenged for three hours to solve the questions asked by the audience.  A judge will awards points to teams for wit, fun, reasoning and the public will give extra points to the teams.


The public has a decisive role to play in the organization of this Science Battle. It is indeed up to him to transmit the questions (scientific, societal, cultural, etc.) on which the researchers will focus. The teams will then have ten minutes to answer them and will be awarded points by a jury according to their performance.

Do you have in mind a question you would like to ask researchers? Send us your questions at ec2u@unipv.it and they could become part of the battle!

Come cheering for the Team of Unipv! 

The event will take place on September 24 from 3pm to 6pm
Aula del 400, Università di Pavia
Piazza Leonardo da Vinci, 6
