Three Minute Thesis Competition

How long does it take to present your doctoral thesis? An hour, half an hour, or maybe only fifteen minutes? Well, we think, that's too long: We will give you three minutes!

The Friedrich Schiller university is calling for the Three Minute Thesis® Competition! In this event, doctoral candidates from all disciplines present their dissertations in English, on one slide only and with no more than three minutes time! The winner takes home € 100, and the chance to fly to the European 3MT Finals.

The competition offers its participants the opportunity to present their doctoral thesis in a nutshell and to introduce their subject to an interested lay audience in both an entertaining and easily understood manner.

The 3MT® competition will be integrated into the "Promovierendentag 2019" on 29 January 2019, and take place in the Rosensäle of FSU. It will start at 18.30h. Next to the first prize that is awarded by a jury, we will also give our audience the chance to award one of the participants a Public's Choice prize.

3MT® is an internationally renowned competition that is conducted at numerous universities throughout the world. It was invented in 2008, by the University of Queensland, Australia, and since then has been a registered trademark for frequent competitions that follow its idea. The Coimbra Group has established this competition in Europe. As a member of this renowned university network, the University of Jena takes part in this competition.
