3 Minute Thesis – the international competition

3MTThe winner of the 2013 University Final of the 3 Minute Thesis competition, Chris West, is now representing Edinburgh in the Universitas 21 International Competition. It is an online competition which has been done through video submissions. The overall winner will be chosen by a panel of judges and will be announced on the 29th of October.

You may find it interesting to view the videos and see if you can learn anything new about how to communicate research effectively.  For those of you who aren’t aware of the competition, the challenge is to present your research to a non-specialist audience using one slide and in only 3 minutes.  The videos are available here.

There is a People’s Choice prize so if you’d like to vote you just have to ‘like’ the video (you do have to quickly register or log in to vimeo but this takes a second). They will be available until the 25th of October.

If you are interested in entering in later years you will find more information about the U21 competition here.
