3mt Competition

Three Minute Thesis Competition

The Three Minute Thesis – 3MT competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. The concept and format was founded by The University of Queensland (Australia) and you can read more about it here.

The competitors have 1 slide to summarize their research in just 3 MINUTES.

PUBLIC CHOICE PRIZE. Following all the 3MT presentations, the audience will be asked to vote on who they think gave the most convincing presentation using the voting function in Zoom. Additionally to the public choice award, there is also prizes for the winner and the runner-up. These two last prices will be decided by the JUDGES and announced in the last plenary of the conference 18th of March, 17.15-17.45.
