Each year Universitas 21 runs a three minute thesis competition in which Doctoral Researchers from the U21 member universities compete with each other to present their research to a non-specialist audience in 3 minutes or less.
This year, the event has involved approximately 800 PhD students from Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Ireland, New Zealand, UK and USA. The original entry has been narrowed down to just 17 students, from which an overall winner will be selected by an international panel of experts.
We are extremely pleased that one of the 17 finalists is Chris Morgan from Biosciences and you can view Chris’s presentation (along with the other 16 presentations) here www.U213MT.com
You will also have an opportunity to cast a vote for the ‘People’s Choice’ prize so please do spare the time to look at the presentations and cast your vote.
You have until Monday 20th October to cast your vote and more information on the competition can be found here http://www.universitas21.com/link/3MT2014.
