The Three-Minute Ph.D. Competition in the Social Sciences invites EUI researchers to present their research topic in a short, three minute video to an audience with no background in that specific research area.

The competition launched by the EUI is the first of this kind in the social sciences and humanities, comprising all four EUI disciplines:


The videos will be evaluated by a jury according to a set of criteria.

The three best videos will be published on the EUI website and widely distributed through the institute’s social media channels.  The winner will get financial support to publish an article in Open Access.


Similar competitions amongst doctoral candidates have been held at hundreds of universities across the world.
