The competition was held on 24 February 2022. Watch it on YouTube!

The 3MT is an academic competition that challenges PhD students to describe their research to a general audience in English in less than three minutes. The 3MT celebrates the discoveries made by research students and encourages you to communicate the importance of your research to the broader community by talking about your PhD project in an informative and audience-oriented way.

PhD students attending the second or third year of doctoral programmes are eligible to participate.
