How long does it take to present your doctoral thesis? An hour, half an hour, or maybe only fifteen minutes? Well, we think, that's too long: We will give you three minutes!

The Friedrich Schiller university is calling for the Three Minute Thesis® Competition! In this event, doctoral candidates from all disciplines present their dissertations in English, on one slide only and with no more than three minutes time! The winner takes home € 100, and the chance to fly to the European 3MT Finals.

The competition offers its participants the opportunity to present their doctoral thesis in a nutshell and to introduce their subject to an interested lay audience in both an entertaining and easily understood manner. Moreover, the Graduate-Academy invites all participants to take part in a workshop to learn how to present research topics in front of lay audiences.

The 3MT® competition will be integrated into the "Promovierendentag 2017" on 23 January 2018, and take place in the Rosensäle of FSU. Next to the first prize that is awarded by a jury, we will also give our audience the chance to award one of the participants a Public's Choice prize.

3MT® is an internationally renowned competition that is conducted at numerous universities throughout the world. It was invented in 2008, by the University of Queensland, Australia, and since then has been a registered trademark for frequent competitions that follow its idea. The Coimbra Group has established this competition in Europe. As a member of this renowned university network, the University of Jena takes part in this competition.
