Three Minute Thesis Finals

A University of Adelaide thesis project explained in just three minutes, using only one PowerPoint slide?

Three Minute Thesis Finals

This event is now fully booked, however you can still watch it on the University of Adelaide Facebook page. Tune in from 6pm on Tuesday 12 September. Online viewers will have exclusive access to interviews with our ten finalists, and will be able to join the conversation throughout the night.

A University of Adelaide thesis project explained in just three minutes, using only one PowerPoint slide? That’s the challenge ten of our research students will tackle in the national 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.

The ability to effectively communicate research impact is a skill that all of our researchers must develop. Following fierce competition in the University heats, ten finalists will compete for the main prize and will go on to compete in the Asia Pacific finals.

At this special event Research Tuesdays our students develop their research and communication skills and share their amazing research, while our audience gets to hear from our future research stars.

The presentations will be judged by a panel of experts and we also invite you to have your say in the People’s Choice Award.

Time: 6:00pm – 7:30pm
Location: Adelaide Health and Medical School building, The University of Adelaide, North Terrace (west end next to SAHMRI).

First Ferment

We’ve all heard stories of rum-soaked misadventure in Australia’s early colonial past. But fermented drinks, and food, were consumed on this land long before the First Fleet’s arrival, let alone our current love affair with kimchi and kombucha.
