“ The 3MT helps you learn how to share your research to large diverse crowds of people in the most digestible way possible. This is likely one of the best skills you will ever learn!”
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a global competition, founded by the University of Queensland in 2008, that cultivates graduate students' academic, presentation and research communication skills. Graduate students have 3 minutes to present a compelling presentation of the impact of their thesis to a non-specialist audience, using one static slide. 3MT competitions are now held in over 350 universities in 59 countries around the world.
Le MT180 s'inspire de 3MT, et a été repris en 2012 au Québec par l'Association francophone pour le savoir (Acfas) qui a souhaité étendre le projet à l’ensemble des pays francophones.
McGill’s 3MT/ MT180 is the flagship communications event for SKILLSETS, organized and run in collaboration with Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, and with support from Campus Life and Engagement.
