3-Minute-Thesis Competition 2023 - Unibo Edition

 


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: it 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.

If you are enrolled in your second or third year of doctoral programmes you are eligible to participate.

1st Round at Unibo

The competition will take place on 23 February 2023 at 4.30 PM. The event will be held in person at the University premises, if conditions related to the Covid emergency allow. We will provide further updates in January.
