What is the Three Minute Thesis? From http://threeminutethesis.org/:
“An 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present. Their time limit… three minutes.
Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students. Developed by The University of Queensland, the exercise cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.”
