Beschreibung An 80,000 word PhD thesis would take 9 hours to present.
Their time limit... 3 minutes.

The idea for the 3MT competition arose in Australia, when Queensland was facing a drought and everyone was requested to use less water – also when showering. A large part of the people thus used egg timers to shower for no more than 3 minutes. The Dean of the University of Queensland´s Graduate School then came up with the idea of the 3MT Competition – et voila, the egg was ready to be served!

The rules of the competition are simple, but not easy:

Each participant only has 3 minutes to present his or her research with only one slide to an educated lay audience in such a way that they can easily follow and understand what the person is working on. The candidates will be filmed.

Coimbra member Universities – such as the University of Göttingen – are encouraged to hold their own competitions to select the best candidates for the entry into the final CG 3MT Competition.

A jury of Professors of the four Göttingen Graduate Schools will judge the Three-Minute Talk. The video of Göttingen´s best PhD student will be send to the Coimbra Doctoral Studies Working Group in Brussels, and will be evaluated online together with the winners from the other universities by representatives of all participating universities. They will then select the three finalists from all 3MT candidates of the participating Coimbra Universities of Europe.

Sounds complicated? Don’t mind. The first Göttingen winner reached second place in Edinburgh, the second Göttingen winner won last year in Krakow. And we all won knowledge in fields that we never thought about.
