Three Minute Thesis

What Is 3 Minute Thesis?

Three minutes. The power of the spoken word. Competitors will present the complexities of their research in an engaging and accessible way before a live audience.  The 3MT concept has had widespread international popularity since it was developed by the University of Queensland in 2008. One take. One static slide. No props.
