Alice Portal (University of Milano-Bicocca and Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique/IPSL) is the winner of the first EMS Innovative Presentation Award with her pre-recorded video presentation on Predictions of the boreal winter stratosphere with the C3S multi-model seasonal forecast system (see the abstract).

The video is a dynamic and grasping presentation. With clear verbal communication, Alice explains the background theory of her work as well as its results while nicely drawing graphs and equations on the board. With this innovative use of technology, Alice’s presentation outstands, since it goes far beyond the usual way of explaining a collection of slides. In addition to this, the figures she draws or shows during the presentation are elegant and easy to understand and her way of speaking is calm and clear throughout the whole video.

In this five-minute video, Alice explains a piece of high-quality scientific research but, at the same time, the introduction to the topic and the innovative way of conducting her presentation may even attract the interest of non-experts. Undoubtedly, Alice has done a great presentation that may inspire other researchers to outstand in the way they present their research.
