Pitching session for Science projects

Be part of this exciting event by bringing your best projects to international broadcasters. They could become the partners you are looking for and make your project an international success!

For the third year, the Eurovision Science & Knowledge Group will organize its pitching session for Science projects on Wednesday 22 June 2016, in La Rochelle (France), in cooperation with the Festival Sunny Side of the Doc.

About the Science Pitching Session selection

We are looking for ambitious projects, aimed at a prime time, international audience. In particular, we seek programmes that enhance awareness of Science and Knowledge topics in a compelling, story-driven way.

Members from the Eurovision Science & Knowledge group evaluate all projects received paying particular attention to the following criteria:

  • Originality
  • Relevance
  • International appeal
  • Feasibility
  • Special attention is given to projects that have a cross media approach
