Three Minute Thesis
3 MT is a competition conducted at universities worldwide: present your thesis in three minutes, with one slide, in English.
The Graduate Schools will join the worldwide 3 MT movement and enter into the 2018 European contest organized by the Coimbra Group. The local winner will be nominated for the European finals in Salamanca, Spain, 30.5.-1.6.2018. This person will be determined in our local event at 2.3.2018. Details to be announced in Jnauray 2018
If you are a second year or even more advanced doctoral researcher from any academic field at the University of Würzburg, express you interest in participation by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you apply, we need to know your research field, the working title of your doctoral thesis, and how close you are to the completion of your thesis. We hope to have participants from all fields of research represented at one of our four Graduate Schools, i.e. Humanities, Social Sciences, Science & Technology, and Life Sciences.
Why should you participate?
Interaction with non-specialists and the public is a core competence for any profession at doctoral level. Particiaptio is thus an asset to your CV. However, public understanding of science is also ever more important in times when opinions and knowledge are increasingly considered equally hard currencies in desision making processes.
