Info on 3MT:

The 3MT® is an international competition developed by the University of Queensland in which doctoral students explain their research in three minutes in language appropriate for a non-specialist audience using one static PowerPoint slide but no other resources or props. The winner from the University of Surrey will be entered into the national semi-final competition, which is coordinated in the UK by Vitae. It is a fun event and a great way to see some of the fabulous research that doctoral students are involved in.
