    Attention PhD Students: The UCD Thesisin3 Competiton

    Graduate Studies are proud to announce the first annual UCD ThesisIn3 competition.

    The UCD ThesisIn3 supports PhD students in their development as confident research communicators.

    Doctoral students are challenged to present their research in three minutes, using only one slide, to a non-specialist audience. Entrants must distil their niche subjects and intensive research into bite-sized presentations that will inform and entertain the general public.

    The winner of ThesisIn3 will go on to represent UCD in the Universitas21 Three Minute Thesis Competition, where they will compete with doctoral researchers from all over the globe. The winner will also receive a € One-For-All voucher to spend at a store of their choice. Two Runners-Up will serve as ambassadors for UCD Doctoral research on the Graduate Studies website, with recordings of their presentations placed there. The two Runners-Up will each receive a € One-For-All voucher.

    Entrants are required to submit an abstract outlining their research in accessible, layman’s terms and a short bio to by Friday 6 April 2018.

    A selection of these applicants will be chosen to present on the day. Successful applicants will be notified by April 30th.

    The event will take place on Wednesday 23 May 2018, from 12-2PM in the Moore Auditorium, O’Brien Centre for Science.

    All members of the UCD community are welcome to attend as spectators.
