THREE MINUTE THESIS (3MT) GLYCOMICS HEATS
Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition that challenges HDR candidates to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience. The 3MT is held at many universities across Australia, New Zealand and Asia, culminating in an Asia-Pacific 3MT Final. The competition aims to professionally develop the presentation and research communication skills of all participants, honing their ability to effectively explain their research in a language that can be understood by a non-specialist audience.
In 2020, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the entire competition was completed online. Click on the link below to view the 2020 contestants' presentations and results.
The 3MT competition will be run again in 2021, so stay tuned for more information!
