Three Minute Thesis Competition 2020

The Coimbra Group Doctoral Studies Working Group will be live streaming the 2020 3MT Coimbra Group Final online on Thursday, October 22nd from 10am - 11am.


In 3MT, PhD students present their research project in three minutes for an audience of non-specialists with only one static slide – and no other resources.

In 2020 the internal winner at AU will win a 35,000 DKK travel grant and the video of the performance will be submitted to the international competition held in the Coimbra Group of more than 35 European universities. 

A Coimbra Group panel will select the top three candidates, who were invited to present at the Coimbra Group annual conference 10-12 June 2020 in Montpellier, France.
