Information about the competition and details of who to contact.
Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.
The 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition requires doctoral researchers to compete to deliver the best research presentation in just 3 minutes (and one slide). It is based on a concept developed by the University of Queensland which quickly spread across Australia and New Zealand, and has gone global.
The University of Edinburgh has run a 3MT competition every year since 2013.
