2020 3MT Finals

The 3 Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a national competition celebrating the exciting research conducted by PhD candidates.

PhD candidates have just three minutes and one slide to effectively explain their research to a non-specialist audience. In the best interests of public health, the 2020 3MT Competition has moved to a virtual format, and competitors have submitted a pre-recorded video of their 3MT presentation.

The University of Adelaide 3MT Finals will be held Tuesday, 8 September. Join the finalists as they compete for a spot in the Asia-Pacific final and help us pick our People’s Choice winner.
