Three Minute Thesis
3MT® is a competition conducted by universities worldwide:
Present your doctoral thesis
- from any research area,
- in English,
- in three minutes,
- with one supportive slide
JMU joined 3 MT for the first time in 2018, taking part in the European contest organized by the Coimbra Group. Our local winner was nominated for the European finals at the University of Salamanca and came in third.
Participation is described here. Why should you participate? Being able to explain complex thoughts and results to non-specialists is expected as a core competence for any profession at doctoral level. Participation is thus an asset to your CV. However, as scientists and scholars we also bear responsibility to communicate our work to society in order to raise awareness, spread knowledge, and maintain trust.
Some additional resources regarding the competition can be found here.
