The 3MT research communication competition challenges Ph.D. students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just three minutes—and using just one visual slide—in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or “dumbing down” research, but an opportunity for students to consolidate their ideas, their motivation and their research discoveries so they can be presented to a wider audience.
See who’s competing and read their research abstracts.
