The 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition requires doctoral researchers to compete to deliver the best research presentation in just 3 minutes (and one slide). It is based on a concept developed by the University of Queensland which quickly spread across Australia and New Zealand, and has gone global.
The University of Graz has run a 3MT competition every year since 2017.
At the 3 Minute Thesis Competition Graz the participating doctoral candidates compete for the People's Choice (audience award) and the 3MT Graz title (jury award).
