JPI HDHL Science Vlog Contest

As part of the JPI HDHL conference, a science vlog (video log) contest for early career scientists was organised. From 14 running projects funded by JPI HDHL, we received a vlog made by one or more early career scientists.The best 3 vlogs selected by a review panel were shown during the conference and the audience could vote to select the winning one. The vlog of the GUTMOM project made by Lea Brix came out as the winner of the contest!
