Three Minute Thesis (3MT) celebrates the discoveries made by research students and encourages their skill in communicating the importance of research to the broader community.
3MT is an academic competition that challenges HDR candidates to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience. Developed by UQ it is now held at many universities across Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
The competition aims to inspire, motivate and empower higher-degree researchers in speaking about their work and helps participants acquire valuable presentation communication skills to help promote their research. Griffith 3MT offers finalists training masterclasses in presentation and communication skills.
After competing in their group heats, 13 finalists from across Griffith University will compete in the Griffith 3MT Final.The winner of this event will be representing Griffith University at the Asia-Pacific competition, to be hosted by The University of Queensland on Friday 29 September 2017.
