The University of York research student finalists will have just three minutes each to communicate the impact of their research to an audience made up of university staff, members of the general public, and industry and win a prize.
3MT® competitions challenge participants to explain their research effectively and concisely to a non-specialist audience in three minutes, helping to develop their presentation and research communication skills. Communicating to different audiences helps demonstrate the contribution that research makes to wider society and the economy. The University of York 3MT® is a chance for our research students to engage and enthuse a range of learners about their research.
University of York PhD students, who have passed their first formal review of progress, and have not yet completed their viva.
