Communication Prize


Since 2007, The Industrial PhD & PostDoc Association has held a yearly communication competition in collaboration with various Danish science communication portals.


The purpose of the Communication Prize competition is to encourage Industrial PhD students and PostDocs to communicate their research in the form of an essay. Communication of research can be quite an art – and of great importance if you wish to reach a greater audience and make your science results known to more than just a limited number of people.


By participating in the competition for the Communication Prize, you will get an opportunity to reach a larger audience – and get your research results printed at and, both of which are portals with science news aimed at the general public.


Participants must be members of the Industrial PhD & PostDoc Association, who are either presently Industrial PhD students or PostDocs, or have defended their PhD thesis within the last 12 months. The essay should not previously have been published.
