For the third year, the Alma Mater participates in the "3MT – Three Minute Thesis Competition", an initiative launched by the Coimbra Group, an international network of which the University is a member. Deadline: 9 January, 2020

The Competition proposes a challenge to PhD students: to explain their research in English to an ‘intelligent lay audience’, therefore to a target of non-experts.

To do this you will have 3 minutes of time and 1 static slide to be projected during your speech.

Among the applications submitted by January 9, 14 PhD students will be selected and invited to present their research at the 3MT – Three Minute Thesis Competition – Unibo Edition event on February 20. The speeches will be recorded and made available on the University's Youtube channel.

A jury and the audience in the hall will vote for the 3 best candidates, which will be awarded with a prize.

The winner will also participate in the annual conference of the Coimbra Group to challenge live the colleagues from other European universities.

Put yourself to the test, the form for collecting applications is online.
