Interested applicants are requested to submit one additional short motivation video of themselves. We recommend that videos are submitted simultaneously or directly after the FSD submission. The video should be divided in two sections and must clearly answer these two questions:

  1. The Topic: Which theme do you choose? Where do you stand when it comes to that specific topic? What are your thoughts on the challenges and opportunities? What are the potential solutions from your perspective?
  2. The Method: What will be your innovative method of onstage presentation? How will you animate and demonstrate your work on stage to best convey your message in 5 to 7 minutes? We recommend avoiding classic slideshows.


  • The duration of the application video must not exceed 3 to 5 minutes.
  • For submission, upload your videos to the CIHEAM Montpellier Cloud under the format .mp4 at
  • File names should read as follows: LastName_FirstName_Country.mp4
