Three Minute Thesis Final

University of Adelaide thesis project explained in just three minutes, using only one PowerPoint slide? That’s the challenge ten of our research students will tackle in the national 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.

The ability to effectively communicate research impact is a skill that all of our researchers must develop. In 2013, we are holding the 3MT final as a special event Research Tuesdays. This gives our students the opportunity to share their amazing research with a greater audience, and allows you to hear from some of our future research stars.

Dr Paul Willis, Director of the Royal Institution of Australia (RiAus) will host the evening, and presentations will be judged by a panel of experts in research and presentation. The panel will select the winner to go on to compete in the national 3MT final in Sydney. We also invite you to have your say by voting for the People’s Choice Award.

To celebrate our students’ achievements, food and drinks will be served after the winners are announced. Music will be provided by the Centre for Aboriginal Studies in Music (CASM) Soul Band.
So come along and be inspired by the next generation of brilliant researchers in what will be a fast-paced and demanding communication challenge, and an enjoyable evening for all.
